March 5, 2012—The purpose of the 2012 Consensus Statement is to provide a state-of-the-art review of the field of catheter and surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation. It reports on the findings of a Task Force, convened by the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), and the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society (ECAS) and charged with defining the indications, techniques, and outcomes of this procedure.

The Heart Rhythm Society endorsed the document on October 5, 2017. 

March 20, 2018—This position statement summarizes knowledge and provides recommendations on diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias in patients with congenital heart defects (CHD), because, in many cases, the anatomy and management of arrhythmias in adult patients cannot directly be applied to patients with CHD. This document mainly addresses arrhythmias in adult CHD. 

May 14, 2009 — This Consensus Statement provides a state-of-the-art review on catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT).

June 2002—Based on the Consensus Conference held during the 21st Annual Scientific Sessions of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE; now known as the Heart Rhythm Society), this consensus statement covers issues of specific cardiac arrhythmias in children with or without congenital heart disease (CHD), the special needs of children and patients with CHD, and how best to meet these needs.
