BOSTON, MA, MAY 13, 2024 – On Thursday, the 45th annual Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) meeting, Heart Rhythm 2024, will kick off in Boston and online, bringing together more than 8,400 clinicians, scientists, researchers, and innovators from the field of cardiac pacing and electrophysiology. This year's meeting received the highest number of late-breaking abstract submissions for its Late-Breaking Clinical Trial and Science sessions in the 45-year history of the meeting.

Heart Rhythm 2024 will offer more than 200 sessions led by over 2,600 expert faculty and abstract presenters from around the world. Attendees unable to travel to Boston may choose the Online-Only Experience to access live streaming and on-demand sessions remotely.

"This year, we are excited to see a 23% increase in scientific abstract submissions since our 2020 annual meeting, bringing us closer to pre-pandemic numbers," said HRS President Jodie L.
