OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Treatment of ventricular tachycardia is one of the great challenges of the present arrhythmology. Drugs are highly inefficient and have severe side effects, on the other hand, repeated defibrillator discharges have a negative impact in quality of life and perhaps in survival. Ablation has become a great therapy, with the help of new technology of 3D mapping, image integration, epicardial approaches, etc. However, there are still great difficulties that need to be addressed. Dr Paolo Della Bella, is one of the most talented electrophysiologist, and in recent years, he has created a kind of new concept, that is the “VT unit” making clear that proper therapy for VT, is not only a matter of ablation technique, but a huge challenge for cardiology departments, because appropriate therapy requires a combined strategy, that need the concourse of intensive care units, anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons, and wide availability of the ablation facilities. The purpose of the webinar is to listen to the “tips and tricks” that are needed to confront the ablation of VT, increasing the possibility of success. On the other hand, the webinar format also allows a very interactive approach, that facilitates a positive feedback from the attendants to the lecturer and vice-versa.
