2019 HRS/EHRA/APHRS/LAHRS Expert Consensus Statement on Catheter Ablation of Ventricular Arrhythmias

May 10, 2019—The consensus statement, accompanied by a systematic review and meta-analysis and an Executive Summary, serves as a resource guide and comprehensive review of the field for clinicians working to improve the care of patients undergoing ablation for ventricular arrhythmias. It offers guidance on how to select patients for catheter ablation, perform procedures in a safe and efficacious manner, and provide follow-up and adjunctive care to obtain the best possible outcomes for patients with ventricular arrhythmias.


The document features a pocket guide, developed in partnership with Guideline Central and available across multiple platforms, including print, electronic media, and the Guideline Central mobile app. A slide set,  Heart Rhythm Journal webinar and Twitter chat, and video interview with Edmond M. Cronin, MB, BCh, BAO, FHRS, CCDS, CEPS-A (Chair) and Frank M. Bogun, MD (Vice-Chair) by Heart Rhythm Journal Online Editor Daniel P. Morin, MD, MPH, FHRS, are also available. The document’s presentation during the 40th Annual Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions with slides and fully synchronized audio can be accessed on the Society’s learning center, Heart Rhythm 365.
