The free online webinar series with the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS), ran by EHRA's affiliated EP cardiac societies, is designed to update cardiologists working in the field of arrhythmias on their scientific knowledge. Leading cardiologists, Prof. Karl-Heinz Kuck, A/Prof. Rajeev Pathak, Prof. John Camm and Dr Tachapong Ngarmukos will guide the EHRA joint webinar focusing on mapping and ablating complex idiopathic ventricular tachycardia.

Dr Ashlea Broomfield of Australian Prescriber interviews A/Prof. Rajeev Pathak about the latest approach for managing this common arrhythmia.


"There are two subsets of patients in our community we see. They are patients with no risk factors. They are lean with no risk factors. They have atrial fibrillation.

Those patients, if we manage their atrial fibrillation with rhythm control strategies and if it's unsuccessful doing catheter ablation, the results are fantastic, up to 90% success for arrhythmia-free survival." - A/Prof. Rajeev Pathak

CARTO V7 lands first in Australia at the a good taste of its new functionality- PARALLEL mapping, HYBRID maps, COHERENT maps to name a few & of course the extremely useful CARTOSOUND. It was a busy week...the flutter pt was in incessant tachy with LV dysfunction..and then the 2 VT storms. Parallel mapping was really useful in that ARVD case. 4 different VT mapped, simultaneous mapping was useful.
