CME Activity Description

Activity Goal

This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/IOM competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, and Practice-Based Learning.

Activity Description

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. The symposium will evaluate 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 will evaluate 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.

The symposium lectures, case reviews, and panel discussions are complemented with a dedicated Q&A session that enables interactive audience participation.

Target Audience

This activity has been developed to meet the educational needs of electrophysiologists, cardiologists and other physicians and associated professionals with an interest in managing patients with persistent atrial fibrillation.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review large unmet clinical need and challenges of treating persistent AF with current ablation approaches.
  • Evaluate the safety and efficacy of dual epicardial and endocardial ablation for treating persistent or longstanding persistent AF.
  • Assess outcomes data and clinical experiences for comprehensive posterior left atrial ablation in persistent AF patients.
