Catheter ablation plus left atrial appendage occlusion in AF: A combination therapy solution

Professor D. Gupta (Liverpool, GB)
The ABC pathway for AF management includes Avoidance of Stroke and Better Symptom Management as two of its Central tenets. A combined left atrial appendage occlusion and catheter ablation procedure potentially offers a 'one-stop' solution that addresses both of these management goals. However, the precise role for this procedure remains to be defined.
This webinar will present the current evidence base, discuss actual case studies, and address the following unanswered questions:
Which patients are suitable to the combined procedure?
Is a hybrid or a staged procedure better?
Does the type of occluder, and modality of ablation matter?
Understand the rationale behind catheter ablation and LAAO to provide a comprehensive solution to preventing AF complications.
This webinar is designed to cardiologists, intensivists and specialists in internal medicine who perform LAAO and ablation.
During the webinar, you will be encouraged to send your questions by chat and interact with our key opinion leaders who will provide live feedback.
