Hosting Organizations

The 19th Annual International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias: Pathophysiology & Therapy is hosted by the Division of Cardiology, The Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY and the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, University of Pennsylvania Health System, Philadelphia, PA

Target Audience

This course has been developed to meet the educational needs of electrophysiologists, cardiologists, and other physicians and associated professionals with an interest in the pathophysiology and management of ventricular arrhythmias.

Program Learning 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 devices and catheter ablation techniques

At the conclusion of this symposium, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss strategies to improve treatment outcomes in patients with ventricular arrhythmias and structural heart disease, including new techniques and technologies
  • Discuss the current status and future role for device therapy in the management of sudden cardiac death and heart failure
  • Discuss the role of new techniques for VT substrate assessment, including functional scar imaging, intraprocedural MRI, and high-density mapping
  • Describe risk stratification for sudden death and treatments, including VF ablation, in patients with VF due to various substrates and syndromes
  • Identify the challenges related to treatment of PVCs and idiopathic VT
  • Describe the science critical to the understanding and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias, including:
    • The role of the autonomic nervous system in ventricular arrhythmogenesis
    • Anatomic substrate for VT
  • Describe the status of ongoing multicenter VT-related trials and discuss future directions and questions to be answered
