CME Activity Description

Activity Description
This accredited educational symposium features leading global experts who will thoroughly examine the impact of Pulsed Field Ablation (PFA) for advancing the standard of care; including potential advantages over thermal modalities such as radiofrequency and cryoablation. The expert lectures, roundtable and panel discussions are complemented with interactive Q&A sessions which allows ample time for attendee participation.

Target Audience
The symposium is intended to meet the educational needs of electrophysiologists, cardiologists, fellows, and allied healthcare professionals dedicated to the management of cardiac arrhythmias.

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

  • Review the basics of Pulsed Field Ablation
  • Evaluate how PFA creates tissue lesions and how it is different from traditional energy sources with respect to side effects, risks and constraints

Learn about what is known experimentally:

  • PFA for atrial lesions to isolate PVs / SVC
  • PFA to create atrial linear lesions
  • PFA for ventricular lesions
  • PFA – safety aspects
  • Results in patients, safety and efficacy from initial clinical trials
  • Future developments with PFA
