The AATS Surgical Treatment of Arrhythmias and Rhythm Disorders course is a two-day, interactive forum to support the exchange of information between electrophysiologists and surgeons. Providing a comprehensive, unbiased review of the surgical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and rhythm disorders, the meeting will cover basic underlying mechanisms, cardiac recording and mapping techniques, clinical electrophysiology, operative techniques, cardiac monitoring and appropriate follow-up. The esteemed faculty will cover: interventional approaches to atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, inappropriate sinus tachycardia, and transvenous and epicardial lead implantation and extraction techniques.

Course Objectives

  • Provide a comprehensive, unbiased review of the surgical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and rhythm disorders for surgeons and electrophysiologists.
  • Recognize basic underlying mechanisms, cardiac recording and mapping techniques, clinical electrophysiology, operative techniques, cardiac monitoring and appropriate follow-up.
  • Demonstrate interventional approaches to atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, inappropriate sinus tachycardia, and transvenous and epicardial lead implantation and extraction techniques will be covered in detail.
  • Discuss in an interactive forum the exchange of information between electrophysiologists and surgeons.
