Program Objectives

  1. Provide a review of new information on the basic pathophysiology of ventricular arrhythmias
  2. Provide an in-depth understanding of current management strategies used for the care of ventricular arrhythmias in various disease states, including non-pharmacological therapies such as implantable device and catheter ablation techniques.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the science critical to the understanding and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias including:       
    • The role of the autonomic nervous system in ventricular arrhythmogenesis.
    • Biophysics of ablation
    • Anatomic substrate for ventricular tachycardia (VT)
  • Review the current status and future role for implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) in the management of sudden cardiac death.
  • Describe the role of remote monitoring and genetic testing in the management/evaluation of patients with structural heart disease and VT
  • Discuss the role of new techniques for  VT substrate assessment including body surface mapping (ECGI), MRI, voltage guided biopsy and  high density mapping
  • Describe risk stratification and treatment including VT ablation and myomectomy in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Discuss strategies to improve treatment outcome in patients with ventricular arrhythmias and structural heart disease including “bail out” strategies after failed catheter ablation
  • Explain the current use/role of antiarrhythmic drug therapy for ventricular arrhythmias
  • Identify techniques to improve ablation success for idiopathic arrhythmias including use of advanced imaging
  • Describe the status of ongoing multicenter VT related trials and discuss which questions need to be answered by trials in the future.
