EHRA 2023 Symposium – Hybrid Ablation: AF and Beyond

Event img

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.


This symposium has been accredited by the European Board for Accreditation of Continuing Education for Health Professionals (EBAC) for one CME point. Physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.


Learning Objectives
