ESC Webinar on Cardiac resynchronisation therapy: What do the ESC Guidelines tell us?

Join Carsten Israel and Haran Burri for a live free webinar on Cardiac resynchronisation therapy: what do the ESC Guidelines tell us?
Our experts will discuss how the ESC Guidelines on CRT are applied in clinical practice. On the background of 2 cases, participants can learn in which situation a CRT is indicated according to guidelines and where it is not indicated or should even be avoided.

 Register before 23 April.
