109. How I Map Atrial Fibrillation: Cases to Illustrate Competing Approaches

Confused by the ever-expanding array of mapping tools in AF? Come listen to the experts in the field of AF mapping talk about how they use commercially available technologies in daily practice and how AF mapping develops our knowledge of mechanisms.

  • Body Surface Mapping of AF to Guide Ablation - Meleze Hocini, MD
  • Mapping Drivers to Improve AF Ablation Outcomes - John M. Miller, MD, FHRS
  • Non-PV Triggers in AF Ablation:  Illustration Cases – How to Provoke, Localize and Ablate - Francis Marchlinski, MD

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • To explain how differing mapping methods may change mechanisms of AF persistence.
  • To identify common findings between AF mapping tools
  • To outline how to map, when to map and where to map
  • To recognize that mapping AF requires tools geared towards the pathophysiological mechanisms of the disease.
