Personalised CRT Using Smart Algorithms to Maximize Response
In this webinar experts in the field of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) will discuss how CRT response can be optimized using innovative device algorithms and will show the clinical study results. Presenters will be Prof. Haran Burri (Geneva, CH) and Dr. Sing-Chien Yap (Rotterdam, NL) while Prof. Christophe Leclercq (Rennes, FR) will moderate the session.
This webinar is supported by
Key Learning Objectives
- The issue of non-response to CRT and how non-response can be addressed
- What the benefits are of left ventricular only pacing synchronized with spontaneous right ventricular conduction and how this can be achieved
- How to monitor whether left ventricular pacing is effective and learn about ways to improve the amount of effective pacing
- How to ensure a high percentage of effective pacing during episodes of atrial fibrillation
- The clinical experience and clinical study results using novel algorithms
- Cardiologists/electrophysiologists involved in the implantation and/or follow-up of cardiac resynchronization therapy devices
- Allied healthcare professionals such as physiologists, hospital technicians or nurses involved in cardiac resynchronization therapy devices
Prof. Christophe Leclercq is from the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire of Rennes (FR) and chief of the cardiology department. His main areas of interest include device therapy for arrhythmias and heart failure. He is a board member of the European Heart Rhythm Assocation and the European Society of Cardiology.
Prof Haran Burri is a device specialist and electrophysiologist at the Cardiology Department of the University Hospital of Geneva, Switzerland, where he is director of the device program. His research has focused on device therapy, with a current interest in conduction system pacing. He is active in the European Heart Rhythm Association, where he chaired the Education Committee and Scientific Program Committees, and serves on the Executive Board.
Prof Burri is on the Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review editorial board.
Dr. Sing-Chien Yap is an academic cardiologist-electrophysiologist in the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam (NL). His main areas of focus are catheter ablation, cardiac device therapy and lead extraction. His research included arrhythmia management in adults with congenital heart disease with special emphasis on devices and catheter ablation.
