Practical aspects (tips and tricks) of catheter ablation of various supravent ricular arrhythmias and idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias, using case-based learning

Target Audience:

Physicians and associated professionals who are looking to perfect their procedure workflows in catheter ablation of a broad spectrum of arrhythmias

Program Objectives

  • Provide a review of different strategies of catheter ablation in various supraventricular arrhythmias and idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias
  • Demonstrate such strategies using selected case-reports
  • Suggest safe strategies for transseptal puncture with and without the use of echocardiography

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify techniques to improve ablation success for supraventricular arrhythmias and idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias, including use of advanced imaging
  • Learn safe strategies how to perform transseptal puncture
