Description

The 1st annual Physiology of Pacing Symposium 2017 is designed to provide the practicing clinician with specialization in cardiac electrophysiology with an in-depth understanding of selected, cutting-edge therapies in: 

  • His bundle pacing for narrow QRS patients as a means to prevent heart failure
  • His bundle pacing for wide QRS patients as a meand to achieve cardiac resynchronization 
  • Cardiac resychronization with leadless, multisite, and endocardial technology and strategies


This comprehensive educational symposium strives to educate clinicians with specialization in electrophysiology. The distinguished faculty for this event includes many of the foremost clinicians and experts in the country as well as internationally recognized guest faculty. Through focused didactics, panel discussion, and interactive dialogue, participants will gain both broad perspectives and detailed insights into physiologic pacing techniques and paradigms. Estimated symposium attendance is 105 participants.

Learning Objectives & Faculty

Program Objectives

  • Outline current and emerging therapies for cardiac pacing with emphasis on physiologic mechanism and responses to cardiac resychronization therapy
  • Review the relationship between electrical stimulation of the heart with mechanics of myocardial contraction
  • Discuss the evolving role of His bundle pacing for standard permanent pacing as well as for cardiac resychronization
  • Review history and recent advances in His bundle pacing and emerging clinical situations and applications in the setting of narrow and wide QRS morphology patients
  • Describe challenges and tricks for implantation technique of permanent His bundle pacemaker
  • Review the relevant anatomy of the membranous septum, conduction system with relation to the right atrium andtricuspid valve
  • Explain the potential role of His bundle pacing for patients with atrial fibrillation
  • Summarize strategies and clinical evidence for the various approache to achieve cardiac resychronization including leadless technology, multisite pacing, and left ventricular endocardial pacing
  • Discuss strategies for improving current technologies and tools for cardiac resychronization
