Going to Heart Rhythm 2019? Find Time for These Free Satellite Sessions

Dinner programs spotlight EP practice challenges, lead management

If you’re attending the Heart Rhythm Society’s Heart Rhythm 2019 meeting in San Francisco in May, save spots in your schedule to take in two highly practical CME-certified satellite sessions over dinner. Both Cleveland Clinic-sponsored events are free of charge, so register while spots remain at ccfcme.org/hrsep19 and ccfcme.org/hrsleadmgt19.

Clinical Challenges in EP Practice:
Innovations and Solutions 2019 and Beyond

Tues., May 7, 2019, 6:30-9:15 p.m. (complimentary dinner program)
InterContinental San Francisco
Official educational satellite session at Heart Rhythm 2019

Management of challenging clinical scenarios is the focus of this fast-paced 2.25-hour session, which features seven short presentations and case studies from top electrophysiologists at Cleveland Clinic and elsewhere.

Practicality will be at a premium, as revealed by presentation titles such as “The PVs are isolated: Now what?” and “His bundle pacing: When and how?”

Keeping up to date is also a priority, as faculty will review the data behind new techniques and technologies for diagnosing and treating complex arrhythmia cases in presentations such as “The year in EP: Top advances and new frontiers” and “AF post-CABANA: Ablation in the real world and patient-reported outcomes.”

Additional areas of focus include challenging cases of left atrial appendage closure, hemodynamic support in high-risk ventricular tachycardia ablation, and diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to ventriculo-nodal pathways.

Lead Management 2019:
What Have We Learned and What Questions Remain?

Wed., May 8, 2019, 6:30-9:15 p.m. (complimentary dinner program)
InterContinental San Francisco
Official educational satellite session at Heart Rhythm 2019

New technologies in cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) present new challenges for device and lead extraction. That’s the premise of this jam-packed 2.25-hour session featuring short talks and case presentations from six expert electrophysiologists from Cleveland Clinic and other leading U.S. centers.

The focus is the fast-evolving landscape of CIED and lead management, and faculty will share the latest on best practices for minimizing infection risk and performing lead and device extractions when indicated. Care will be devoted to specific emerging scenarios, such as extraction of leadless pacemakers.

The scope of presentations ranges from hyperpractical specificity (“When the coronary sinus lead doesn’t just slide out”) to big-picture thought leadership (“How can we prepare the next generation of electrophysiologists for the next wave of lead extaction?”). In between are talks devoted to lessons in CIED infection learned from the PADIT and WRAP-IT trials, tips on preoperative imaging for transvenous lead extraction, and more.
