Activity Description:

This activity is intended to provide tools to surgeons and cardiologists that enable them to collaborate in the care of patients with atrial fibrillation and implantable devices and leads. Currently, surgeons and cardiologists treat manage atrial fibrillation and implantable leads independent of each other.  

This seminar will educate them to work together to improve patient safety and ablation efficiency.  Barriers such as facility limitations, and communication difficulties will be addressed during this seminar. The Boston AFib and the Heart Rhythm Society meetings have generally been cardiology centric venues while ISMICS has been focused on surgery.  

This conference works to bring both cultures together. Safety standards of industry recommend surgical collaboration during lead management, specifically removal. This conference reinforces this standard with team building tools for lead management often lacking.
