About this event

  • Date and time Wed 13 Apr 2022 from 9:00am to 1:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

A half-day educational session for sub-speciality interventional EP trainees on ventricular tachycardia, including diagnostic and treatment, approaches, with a particular focus on VT mapping and ablation. This meeting aims to highlight and discuss aspects of ventricular tachycardia (VT) management for sub-speciality cardiac electrophysiology trainees, with a particular focus on VT mapping and ablation.

Topics will include management of VT occurring in normal hearts as well as various forms of structural/electrical cardiac disease, medical management options and approaches to catheter ablation of VT.

By the end of this meeting delegates will be able to :

  • Understand the mechanisms and ECG characteristics of VT
  • Review optimal management of different VT aetiologies, including acute electrical storm
  • Understand different techniques for mapping, entrainment and ablation of VT
  • Explore future directions in VT management

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
