This is the 8th year for the International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias: Pathophysiology and Therapy. Using a combination of didactic presentations, panel discussions, and questions and answer sessions, our goal is to educate the participants on state-of-the-art information pertaining to the pathophysiology and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. There will also be VT related cases streamed live from the University of Pennsylvania during which a moderated panel discussion and question and answer session will occur to educate and demonstrate to the audience members the most up to date techniques for complex ablation and other procedures.

A new study shows that atrial fibrillation (AF) increases the risk of dementia in older adults who have not had a stroke and have normal baseline cognitive function. The meta-analysis, published in the November edition of HeartRhythm,the official journal of the Heart Rhythm Society, is the first-of-its-kind to observe a large population of patients over a relatively long follow-up period. The study results support an independent longitudinal relationship between the two conditions, therefore associating the presence of AF with greater risk of developing dementia.
