Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate anatomy, biophysics of ablation, and meaning of electrical signals.
  • Review common commercially available mapping systems.
  • Examine the underlying anatomy and physiology for atrial flutters.
  • Evaluate the fundamentals of PVI and how to avoid proarrhythmia with linear ablation.
  • Review techniques and technologies to map focal tachycardias.
  • Assess techniques for safety with AF ablation.
  • Review Intracardiac Ultrasound and imaging modalities in electrophysiology.
  • Review and manage complications of AF and VT ablation.
  • Describe the science critical to the understanding and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias including,
  • biophysics of ablation and anatomic substrate for VT.
  • Appraise correct use of maneuvers for SVT diagnosis.
  • Apply approaches to difficult SVT cases, including congenital heart disease.
  • Review fundamental device techniques including LV Leads, and the anatomy for implant and extraction.
  • Examine key algorithms and troubleshooting for CRT and ICD.

Target Audience
The Summit is designed for trainees currently in (or entering) electrophysiology and cardiology fellowship programs. Additionally, current practicing electrophysiologists, cardiologists, nurses, physician assistants, and other associated allied healthcare professionals and physicians who are involved in the performance of ablation and device based procedures will find this program a beneficial and a comprehensive review.
