Who doesn’t love the “pearls and pitfalls” sessions? These are one of the best ways to get to the “heart” of a topic.

It was just a few years ago that papers were appearing describing the successful ablation of idiopathic outflow tract ventricular tachycardia from the distal great cardiac vein rather than the aortic cusp. While this might give EPs another option for treatment protocol, it’s still important to understand the challenges associated with the aortic valve cusp approach. That is just one of the topics that will be discussed in this session.

When ventricular tachycardia is hemodynamically stable, EPs are presented with various options for treatment and ablation is quickly gaining momentum for these patients. But what do you need to know regarding strategies for ablation in this patient population? Stay tuned!

The session will be rounded out by two more presentations:

  • Ablating Conventionally Unmappable VT: When to, How to?
  • Epicardial and Surgical VT Ablation

 
The luminary panel of presenters should help EPs quickly gain an appreciation for the challenges and solutions associated with each scenario.
