Ventricular Tachycardia Mapping and Ablation in Structural Heart Disease

Activity Type:

  • Course

Release Date: 10/13/2016

Expiration Date: 10/31/2019

  • Participation - no CE credit: 3


The ablation strategy for Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) varies greatly depending on the etiology of the VT.  This learning pathway begins with the common idiopathic and scar related VTs for routine ablation, highlighting critical basic concepts and techniques.   Next up, high level tips for the complex and rare  arrhythmias that many electrophysiologists will have minimal exposure to in daily practice.  Completing the entire learning pathway will provide users with a broad base of experience and perspective to assist in providing quality care to VT patients.
