Heart Rhythm Society announces late-breaking clinical trials for annual conference

The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) recently announced the late-breaking clinical trials sessions for the upcoming Heart Rhythm scientific sessions.

The 38th annual conference takes place from May 10 to May 13 at McCormick Place in Chicago. More than 800 experts in the cardiac rhythm management field will serve as faculty for more than 250 educational sessions, according to HRS.

Here is a schedule of the late-breaking clinical trials (all times are Central Standard Time):
