September 8 -
2013 - Fairmont Copley Plaza - Boston, MA
Guest Course Directors:
- Stevenson, William G., M.D.
- Wilber, David, M.D.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias amenable to ablation
- Describe diagnostic maneuvers for accurate diagnosis of different supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias
- Distinguish both normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy and its role in the genesis of arrhythmias and ablations strategy
- Describe optimal mapping and ablation techniques for specific arrhythmias and clinical circumstances
- Discuss major risks associated with ablation
- Assess the value and limitations of high-end technology in the ablation process
- Identify the role of pre and intraprocedural imaging techniques to optimize outcomes and increase safety of ablation procedures
- Summarize optimal energy sources for ablation of specific cardiac arrhythmias and understand the underlying mechanisms of action
