International Symposium on Left Atrial Appendage (ISLAA)

International Symposium on Left Atrial Appendage (ISLAA)

This symposium, jointly provided by the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL) and the ISLAA Foundation, provides multi-specialty education to address gaps in knowledge and competence through didactic lectures, panel discussions, and case studies. This symposium is designed for physicians, advanced practice registered nurses, nurses, and allied health professionals in the fields of electrophysiology, cardiology, family, and internal medicine.

Addressing the educational needs in the anatomy, physiology, and pathological aspects of the left atrial appendage, the 12th annual International Symposium on Left Atrial Appendage (ISLAA) is in-person at the InterContinental New York Times Square in New York City, New York, as well as online participation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Compare and contrast DOACs for efficacy and safety while emphasizing the patient populations for whom they are best suited.
  • Review evidence-based guidelines and best clinical approaches to thromboprophylaxis.
  • Assess the cost-effectiveness of systemic anticoagulation versus LAA exclusion technologies for stroke prophylaxis.
  • Review the role of oral anticoagulation in stroke prophylaxis.
