Co-Sponsored Event


Add to my calendar

Activity Description:

This program was very well received in 2013, and we look toward 2014 having the same success. There is a great need for educational information on new options in therapy for prevention of stroke in India and the USA. There will also be debates on new technology and presentations on ablation relevant to both physician groups.

This symposium will have two educational sessions and a panel discussion:

  • Session 1-New Directions in Interventional Therapies for Arrhythmias: Points of View
  • Session 2-Advances in Imaging and Interventions.
