The purpose of the Annual International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias is to provide a current review of new information on the basic pathophysiology of ventricular arrhythmias; to provide an in-depth understanding of the various management strategies that are currently being developed for the management of ventricular arrhythmias in various disease states, including non-pharmacologic therapies such as an implantable device therapy and advances in catheter ablation techniques.

The AF VT VF Summit is designed for electrophysiologists, cardiologists, fellows-in-training, and others interested in cardiac arrhythmias. We will present the latest results of basic and clinical research and information about ablation, imaging and device technologies and therapies. This year we will have interactive discussions, case presentations, and panel discussion. New this year: Poster Presentations!

ISCAT aims to give an overview of the field of catheter ablation providing access to the best scientific knowledge. The meeting will be dedicated to catheter ablation of Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Arrythmias. Technical and clinical aspects of current methods for ablation of Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Arrhythmias will be discussed with internationally renowned leaders in the field. Many topics will be illustrated by case reports and videos.

All technical and clinical aspects of current methods for ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias will be discussed.

More than 350,000 deaths occur each year as a result of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In fact, SCA claims one life every two minutes, taking more lives each year than breast cancer, lung cancer, or AIDS. To decrease the death toll from SCA, it is important to understand what SCA is, what warning signs are, and how to respond and prevent SCA from occurring.

More than 65 percent of Americans not only underestimate the seriousness of SCA, but also believe SCA is a type of heart attack. But they are not the same thing.

This course will provide comprehensive instruction for diagnosing common and complex cardiac arrhythmias in the electrophysiology laboratory and achieving effective and safe ablation.  Case-based illustrative presentations will highlight diagnostic dilemmas and key management strategies.  Experts discussing detailed patient cases provide a step-by-step analysis and 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 and without associated heart disease.   Detailed discussions of relevant cardiac anatomy integrated with intracardiac ultrasound and other imaging modalities are highlighted.
