Activity Description

The webcast is comprised of proceedings from the accredited satellite symposium held during Heart Rhythm, Improving Persistent AF Ablation Outcomes through a Multidisciplinary Approach.  

Ablation outcomes for the treatment of persistent or long standing persistent AF remain suboptimal, as many highly touted approaches have proven ineffective in certain patient populations. This activity evaluates the potential impact of emerging hybrid ablation procedures for improving outcomes in patients who are not optimal candidates for catheter ablation alone.

The leading experts examines existing challenges for the treatment of persistent or long standing persistent AF, and assess patient selection and techniques necessary to enhance outcomes with multidisciplinary hybrid approaches.
