Scientific Highlights

Cases Include:

A world class faculty discusses live cases as well as recorded cases, focusing on the different aspects of electrophysiology procedures. 

  • VT Ablation - Endocardial and Epicardial
  • AF Ablation and Ablation of Post AF Atrial Arrhythmias
  • Balloon Cases (Cryo, Apama, Laser)
  • CRT Implants
  • Lead Extraction and Venoplasty
  • SQ ICD

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and apply the techniques used to map and ablate atrial arrhythmias.
  • Identify processes to reduce complications and promote safety measures for the patient during ablation of atrial fibrillation.
  • Understand and apply techniques used to map and ablate ventricular arrhythmias.
  • Identify processes to reduce complications and promote safety measures for the patient during ablation of ventricular arrhythmias.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the latest evidence and guidelines in arrhythmia management and treatment with new technology.
  • Apply approaches that best utilize the new technologies demonstrated to optimize clinical outcomes.
  • Identify processes that can benefit from the integration of new technologies and promote safer procedures for the patient.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the techniques used to perform lead extractions.
  • Discuss approaches and techniques to perform a successful lead extraction.
  • Identify processes to reduce complications and promote safety measures for the patient during lead extractions.
