Overview

In this webinar, experts in transcatheter (leadless) pacing will present the recently published real-world data from the Post-Approval Registry and discuss how they compare to the Micra™ IDE study results. The speakers will also share their perspective on potential patient indications and illustrate this with some case reports.

Key Learning Objectives

  • the potential patient indications for transcatheter pacing systems, through case reports.
  • the results of the Micra™ IDE study and the Micra™ Post-Approval Registry, reflecting the real-world results in a wide variety of countries and patients.

Target Audience

  • Cardiologists and electrophysiologists not involved in the implantation of transcatheter pacemakers, but who have patients who could benefit from the therapy.
  • Cardiologists implanting or planning to implant transcatheter pacemakers
