This webinar aims to provide an overview of the diagnosis and management of arrhythmias in the context of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), from a cardiac electrophysiology perspective.

During this webinar you will:

  • Understand the main anatomical and related arrhythmic substrates in ACHD

  • Learn the aetiology and acute medical management of arrhythmias in ACHD

  • Obtain an overview of interventional strategies to treat ACHD arrhythmias in the EP lab

  • Review the role of cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices in congenital heart disease
