S-010. From the ECG to the Diagnosis: How to Squeeze out All the Information Contained

Session Description: Be honest - how often are you tempted to ignore the 12 lead and go straight for the intracardiac? However you look at it, the ECG is key to EP. Come hear masters in the field of ECG-ology remind you of how many hidden gems there are if you really look attentively at the surface ECG.

S-009. EP Diagnostic Maneuvers for Narrow and Wide Complex Tachycardias: State-of-the-Art

Session Description: Need a refresher on diagnostic maneuvers? New to EP, or just a lover of intracardiac electrograms? This session will highlight maneuvers used in common narrow and wide complex rhythms. It will be of interest to all, no matter what your level of EP expertise.

S-028. Syncope: After 40 Years of HRS, Still a Lot of Open Questions

Session Description: This session will provide an analysis of what is known about syncope, mechanisms and treatments. Knowledge gaps will be identified as well as potential areas for future investigation and treatment strategies.

S-019. Ablation Should Be Performed in All Patients With Brugada Syndrome

Session Description: In this session, two experts in the field are discussion the chances and limits of the newly introduced technique of ablation for Brugada syndrome.

S-034. LAA Occlusion Should Be Used in All Patients With Persistent/Permanent AF

Session Description: To educate the audience about the potential benefits of LAA occlusion in patients with persistent/permanent AF relative to OAC.

MP11. Epidemiology of AF Revisited

Session Description: The session aims at clarifying aspects of the etiology of AF and its clinical significance in different patients' populations

S-044. Critical Management Issues in Cardiomyopathy Patients: From Quality of Life to SCD Prevention

Session Description: This session will explore clinical management issues in cardiomyopathy/SCD patients from determining candidates for device therapy, to discussion of end of life issues.

S-043. Anticoagulation in Challenging Clinical Settings

Session Description: Patients with comorbidities like renal disease, CAD or after cryptogenic stroke as well as patients in special situations like e.g. ablation are difficult to manage in terms of stroke prevention. Come and find out how renowned experts in the field try to solve unsolvable clinical settings.

S-JS07. Secondary AF, Is It No Big Deal?

Session Description: Secondary atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common phenomenon, occurring especially postoperatively, after myocardial infarction or during an acute illness. Learn about risks of late recurrence of AF after a secondary AF episode, specific clinical features and echocardiographic data which could help identify high-risk patients for late recurrence of AF. Prepare strategies for further follow-up after secondary AF episodes. Attendees will review the more recent information available on secondary AF and improve everyday practice. A Joint Session presented by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS).

S-JS06. Management of Complex Arrhythmias

Session Description: The session will showcase the latest research on AF epidemiology in India and atrial arrhythmia management in valvular heart disease with a focus on rheumatic heart disease, and the outcomes of catheter ablation. A Joint Session presented by the Indian Heart Rhythm Society (IHRS).

MP13. Oral Anticoagulation and LAA Occluder - Effects, Side-effects and Open Questions

Session Description: This sessions deals with the management of oral anticoagulation and LAA occluder in the setting of AF.

S-059. Mapping AF Substrate: When to Do It? How to Do It?

Session Description: This session is designed to familiarize attendees with a variety of adjunctive mapping techniques which can be used during AF ablations, and when and how to use them.

S-060. How to Use Best Diagnostic Maneuvers in Differentiating Supraventricular and Ventricular Tachycardia

Session Description: Diagnostic maneuvers are critical in differentiating types of supraventricular tachycardia, differentiating supraventricular tachycardia from ventricular tachycardia and vise versa. This session provides the clinical pearls of how to use programmed electrical stimulation to build up your diagnostic skills and approach in the EP lab to facilitate pulmonary vein isolation, supraventricular and ventricular tachycardia ablation.

S-067. Avoiding ICD Therapy in Inherited Arrhythmia Syndromes and Cardiomyopathies

Session Description: This session aims at describing difficult decision-taking for SCD prevention in inherited arrhythmia syndromes and cardiomyopathies.

S-077. New Options for the Pharmacological Treatment of Arrhythmias

Session Description: This session addresses the non-invasive, pharmacological treatment options in cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure patients with an overview over outcome results and side effects.

S-076. Complex SVT — Mastered!

Session Description: This session aims at showing a master at his work - complex SVT cases are presented to an outstanding, experienced EP person, who will discuss his thoughts and diagnostic steps to understand the pathophysiological mechanisms of the presented arrhythmias.

MP12. Mapping AF - What ECG Recordings Can Tell

Session Description: The session aims at exploring all aspects of AF ECG recordings obtained from surface ECG, endocardial and epicardial

S-093. Use All You Can Get: Implementing Advanced Imaging in VT Ablations

Session Description: Are you confident as to when and how imaging can maximize the success of your EP procedures? This session will integrate the knowledge of multiple imaging modalities including multi-channel electrocardiography, echocardiography, cardiac CT, cardiac MRI and cardiac nuclear imaging to guide diagnosis and management of ventricular arrhythmia, and to facilitate catheter ablation.

S-092. SVT Is Not Always Benign — Cases

Session Description: To highlight cases of SVT where either underlying disease complicated management of SVT or where SVT resulted in adverse outcomes.


Saturday, May 11
