21th Prague Workshop on Catheter Ablation, April 21-24, 2018 Congress Center, Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR

Practical sessions

Practical sessions associated with 21th Prague Workshop on Catheter Ablation with live demonstrations

21st April 2018, 12:00-6:00 pm

Venue:

Congress Centre, Institute for Molecular genetics of the ASCR (www.img.cas.cz)

Videnska 1083,142 00 Prague 4, Czech Republic

Faculty:

Robert Čihák, Josef Kautzner, Petr Peichl, Dan Wichterle (Prague), Andrey Ardashev (Moscow), Yan Yao (Beijing)

MainFocus:

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
  • Discuss such strategies using selected case-reports
  • Demonstrate live cases of conventional ablation
  • 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
