Advanced Hybrid Ablation Course for Long-standing Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

Advanced Hybrid Ablation Course for Long-standing Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

The Advanced Hybrid Ablation Course builds on the recent positive results of hybrid therapy procedures and the FDA approval of the EPi-Sense Hybrid Coagulation system for long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (Afib) patients. The Advanced Hybrid Ablation Course focuses on the rationale, efficiency, and efficacy of performing hybrid ablation procedures. This course includes both didactic and hands-on training from both electrophysiologists and surgeons experienced with the hybrid procedure.


The course encourages attendee interaction and group discussion including an informal dinner reception with the course faculty. Electrophysiologists, Surgeons, Physician Assistants, and others HCP’s involved in the management and treatment of Afib patients are welcome to attend.
