BOSTON, May 14, 2009 — Catheter ablation is now an important therapy option to be considered when trying to control recurrent ventricular tachycardias (VT). To ensure that physicians have up to date knowledge of this evolving therapy, which can be life-saving for some patients, and promote the best patient care, the European Heart Rhythm Association and the Heart Rhythm Society have prepared EHRA/HRS Expert Consensus on Catheter Ablation of Ventricular Arrhythmias. The consensus statement was released today at Heart Rhythm 2009, the Society’s 30th Annual Scientific Sessions.

WASHINGTON —  The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), written in joint partnership with European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society (ECAS), issues an international consensus statement on indications, techniques and outcomes of catheter and surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF).
