Overview

Electrophysiologists (EP) and other cardiovascular providers who manage patients with arrhythmias are in constant need of receiving the latest information in the field.

This 1.5 day symposium will provide an opportunity for global leaders in EP research and clinical practice to interact with providers  from around the country to explore current challenges and state of the art practice in the management of AF, VT, VF, and other arrhythmia-based syndromes with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

  • Describe treatment strategies to reduce AF risk factors known to be effective in reducing AF burden
  • Appraise the research and clinical results in catheter ablation procedures that focus on targets or      drivers of the AF substrate
  • Discuss how stroke prevention with VKA and non-VKA oral anticoagulants and left atrial appendage occlusion procedures can be used more effectively to avoid underutilization of stroke prevention therapies in patients with AF
  • Evaluate the clinical experience and potential of left atrial occlusion devices to manage thromboembolic risk associated with AF
  • Recognize the advances in the management of ventricular arrhythmias such as VT-substrate ablation, sustained VT ablation, MRI image-guided VT ablation, voltage mapping, ICD implantation, and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)
  • Recount the challenges and new opportunities in lead management and appreciate new technologies in imaging and surgical rescue that have the potential to improve outcomes
  • Appraise the outcomes for His-bundle pacing options and  cardiac devices such as leadless pacemakers, subcutaneous ICDs, and wearable defibrillators

Target Audience:

This program is designed for, but not limited to, cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiovascular fellows, electrophysiology fellows, nurses, PAs and all healthcare providers involved in the care of arrhythmia patients.
