At 15:45 CET (9:45 ET) on 16 April at EHRA 2023 in Barcelona, ES, Radcliffe Education is hosting a CME-accredited symposium entitled 'Hybrid Ablation: AF and Beyond'.


Under the expert moderation of Prof Harry Crijns (Maastricht, NL), a leading international faculty comprising Prof Carlo de Asmundis (Brussels, BE), Prof Mark La Meir (Brussels, BE) and Dr Ashley Nisbet (Bristol, UK) will examine which arrhythmias could benefit from a hybrid approach, review the practical implementation of hybrid ablation in IST, and consider learnings from persistent and long-standing AF.

With the applications of hybrid ablation stretching beyond the traditional AF core, this insightful session will be both evidence-based and practical with case studies demonstrating real-world applications. The session will also consider the knowledge and team composition requirements to enhance effectiveness when administering the hybrid procedure for optimal long-term patient outcomes.


This symposium is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AtriCure Inc.


Learning Objectives

  • Identify arrhythmias other than atrial fibrillation that may benefit from hybrid ablation
  • Summarise the existing evidence base for hybrid ablation in IST, POTS and Brugada Syndrome
  • Identify patients who may benefit from a hybrid ablation approach
  • Recall existing RCT and real-world evidence supporting the use of hybrid ablation in AF
