Activity Description:

The program is taught by a select group of international leaders and pioneers in the field of electrophysiology, pathology, pharmacology and basic/translational research including members of the faculty from the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Department of Electrophysiology.

The course is structured to meet the educational needs of electrophysiologists, cardiologists, and associated professionals with an interest in the care of patients with ventricular arrhythmias. The faculty have all been strongly urged to present cutting edge information with the aim of forwarding the field through discussion and sharing information.

The goal of the symposium is to answer clinical questions while raising new ones all the while educating the participants. Our distinguished group of faculty will speak on a variety of topics in an effort to provide a current review of new information on the pathophysiology of ventricular arrhythmias and to provide an in-depth understanding of the various management strategies that are currently being developed for the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias in various disease states, including non-pharmacological therapies such as implantable device therapy and advances in catheter ablation techniques.

The scientific basis for clinical experience with and limitations of new techniques and therapies will also be discussed and explored.
