Activity Description

This enduring on-demand webcast presents recorded ablation and LAA closure case presentations from leading centers around the world that demonstrate interesting clinical situations, and optimal techniques, and technologies. Each case, which will focus on complex atrial and ventricular ablation and LAA closure, is accompanied by expert commentary by world-renowned international experts in the field of ablation.

This activity was created from the live proceedings of the satellite symposium, EP Cases for the Real World, held at Heart Rhythm 2018.
