Atrial fibrillation ablation, different types of energy delivery - RF/laser(cryo)

European Heart Rhythm Association webinar

27/11/2014 00:00 27/11/2014 00:00 Europe/Paris Atrial fibrillation ablation, different types of energy delivery - RF/laser(cryo)

Access event page

European Heart Rhythm Association DD/MM/YYYY
Atrial Fibrillation

Watch the webinar recording


During this webinar, the following topics will be discussed:

  • Explanation of different mechanisms of atrial fibrillation (focal triggers, multiple waves, rotors)
  • Ablation strategies for successful ablation of atrial fibrillation
  • Different types of ablation energies (RF/laser/cryo) including their biophysics
  • Different ablation devices (catheter, multi electrode device, balloon)
  • Atrial fibrillation ablation: patient selection and results using different ablation energies and devices

At the end of the webinar, you should be able to explain:

  • How to ablate patients with atrial fibrillation
  • How to choose the type of energy delivery (RF/laser/cryo)
  • How to choose the ablation device (catheter, multi electrode device, balloon)
  • The outcome of atrial fibrillation ablation using different techniques and devices
