Dr Alexandre Ouss is an electrophysiologist at Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, NL. Dr Ouss played an instrumental role in identifying and implementing efforts to optimise the Cryoballoon ablation workflow and to support the adoption of a day case approach at Catharina Hospital.
Today, the Catharina Hospital team has consistently short lab occupancy times per Cryoballoon procedure and a very collaborative team dynamic. Dr Ouss and the rest of the EP team are very diligent about outcome data collection for each AF ablation procedure as well. The decision to implement day case was only made after thoroughly reviewing their complication data.
