Simplifying the mapping and ablation of atrial tachycardia: a four step plan

Simplifying the mapping and ablation of atrial tachycardia: a four step plan

Presented by
Prof Richard Schilling
Barts Health NHS Trust, UK
Moderated by
Dr Afzal Sohaib
Barts Health NHS Trust, UK

This webinar aims to educate viewers on how to handle and easily map post-ablation atrial tachycardias in complex arrhythmia patients. It will cover the basic principles of tachycardia ablation and will focus on simplifying the procedure, using standard 3-D mapping technologies, highlighting the implications for diagnosis.



  • Mechanisms of tachycardia
  • Implications for diagnosis 
  • Mapping 
  • Basic principles of tachycardia ablation 
  • Ablation: 4-step plan


Prof Richard Schilling has been a consultant cardiologist at St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London NHS Trust since 2001. He was appointed as chair in cardiology and electrophysiology in 2009. His current practice involves all aspects of electrophysiology and management of cardiac arrhythmia including catheter ablation, implantation of pacemakers and cardiac defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization therapy for heart failure patients.

Prof. Schilling was part of the team that lead the merger of the Heart and Barts hospitals which is one of the largest heart centers in Europe. He is the Prof of Cardiology and Director of Strategy and Commercial for Barts Health NHS Trust Hospital, the Medical Director and trustee for the Atrial Fibrillation Association and Arrhythmia Alliance and President for the British Heart Rhythm Society.


Dr Afzal Sohaib is a Consultant Cardiologist at Barking, Havering, & Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust and the Bart's Heart Centre in London. He completed a British Heart Foundation Clinical Research Training Fellowship at the International Centre for Circulatory Health at NHLI and continues to work with the team at NHLI. His research interests are in cardiac electrophysiology and devices.

Dr Sohaib attained his medical degree from University College London and was a Betuel Prize winner after finishing in second place in the University of London Gold Medal Examination. He trained in cardiac electrophysiology and device implantation at the Hammersmith Hospital, Harefield Hospital, and the Royal Brompton Hospital. He has EHRA Certification in Cardiac Electrophysiology and EHRA Certification in Pacemakers and ICDs.

This webinar is to inform and educate electrophysiologists and cardiac surgeons on:

  • Understanding the mechanism of post-AF ablation atrial tachycardias.
  • Exploring the methods for identifying the mechanisms.
  • Understanding how to ablate them effectively and simply.
  • Cardiac Electrophysiologists performing and assisting during complex arrhythmia ablation procedures.
  • Healthcare professionals using alternative AF/VT mapping techniques and referring healthcare professionals treating AF/VT patients will also find this of interest.
