Course Program
Electrophysiology IEP Fellows' Course
August 23-25, 2024 | Boston, MA

The following are potential topics to be covered during the course:

Clinical Challenges:

  • Risk stratification of incidental findings on 12 lead EKGs (ARVC, Brugada syndrome, WPW, Long QT)

  • Challenging cases about when to implant devices:

    • ICD secondary prevention ICD in ischemic heart disease 

    • ICD in channelopathies such as CPVT, Long QT and vasovagal syncope

    • Pacemaker implant post-cardiac surgery

  • Device programming and electrograms (EMI vs. lead fracture, pacemaker mediated tachycardia)

  • Tilt table testing 

  • Difficult event monitors

Procedural Challenges:

  • Supraventricular tachycardia studies 

  • Ventricular tachycardia cases and approaches

  • Difficult appendage closures (Amulet vs. Watchman)

  • Strategies for success in ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation

  • Novel ablation tools including current (QDOT) and future tools (pulsed field ablation)

  • Conduction system pacing (how to and when to) including deep septal (Left bundle pacing) and Bachmann's pacing

  • Cardioneural ablation

  • Complication mitigation: Devices (ultrasound access, infection preventions)

  • Complication mitigation: Ablation (Esophageal protection, when to do coronary angiograms) 

Business Challenges:

  • Billing for an AF ablation 

  • Developing a referral network 

  • Remote monitoring, making it safe and profitable 

  • Fundamentals of Medical Employment and Consulting Contracts

  • Hospital-employed vs. Private model
