All abstracts presented at Heart Rhythm 2017 are embargoed until the beginning of the scientific session presenting the research; this includes late-breaking clinical trials. The Heart Rhythm Society reserves the right to alter embargo times at its discretion.

All press materials on presentations and late-breaking clinical trials must have the abstract number, as well as the date and time of the embargo, prominently displayed at the top of the release. 

Press releases may be issued in the months prior to Heart Rhythm 2017 but the release must not in any way reveal the data or study results.  If the study results are reported prior to the embargo date and time, the abstract is subject to removal from Heart Rhythm 2017.
