Activity Description:

This case-based review with leaders in clinical electrophysiology (EP) will provide guidance and a sophisticated understanding of management techniques for patients that EP physicians are likely to encounter. 

Topics and presentations have been specifically chosen in areas that are controversial, unsettled, clinically or technically challenging or undergoing an evolution in thinking. The program will include examples of cases that are difficult to manage in the early part of one's career or when functioning without the benefits of colleagues and senior staff.  We aim to have a thorough, robust and interactive discussion with the audience, one that should lead to practical and clinical advantage.
