This two-day, interactive forum supports the exchange of information between electrophysiologists and surgeons, and aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the field. The course covers clinical decision making in selecting the medical, catheter-based, and surgical options for the treatment of arrhythmias. While the main emphasis is on the surgical and hybrid treatment of atrial fibrillation, there are also sessions on other arrhythmias and issues including inappropriate sinus tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia, as well and pacemaker/defibrillator lead extraction and implantation.
This year we will have a review of the recent high impact clinical trials, as well as an emphasis on the technical aspects of performing various arrhythmia operations. There also will be a chance for attendees to gain hands-on experience with the devices and operative approaches. Hope to see you in Boston.
