Advanced Catheter Ablation: New Tips, Techniques and Technologies for Complex Arrythmias will take place September 7-10, 2019 in Chicago, IL

This course will provide comprehensive instruction for diagnosing common and complex cardiac arrhythmias in the electrophysiology laboratory and achieving effective and safe ablation. Case-based illustrative presentations will highlight diagnostic dilemmas and key management strategies. Experts discussing detailed patient cases provide a step-by-step analysis and in-depth review of approaches to catheter ablation for the spectrum of cardiac arrhythmias.

Location:

Swissotel Chicago
Chicago, IL
