Activity Description:

Program faculty will review detailed illustrative cases with a step-by-step analysis, providing a current in-depth review of approaches to catheter ablation for the spectrum of cardiac arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, complex atrial arrhythmias after AF ablation or in congenital heart disease, atrial tachycardias, and atypical flutters, and ventricular arrhythmias with or without associated heart disease

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias amenable to ablation
  • Distinguish both normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy and its role in the genesis of arrhythmias and ablations strategy
  • Describe optimal mapping and ablation techniques for specific arrhythmias and clinical circumstances
  • Discuss major risks associated with ablation
  • Assess the value and limitations of high-end technology in the ablation process
  • Identify the role for pre and intraprocedural imaging techniques to optimize outcomes and increase safety of ablation procedures
  • Summarize the best energy source for specific cardiac arrhythmias and understand the underlying mechanisms of action

Target Audience:

Electrophysiologists, Cardiologists, Cardiovascular Surgeons, Internists, Nurses
