Interactive Symposium Focuses On Atrial Fibrillation

February 25, 2010 — A case-based interactive symposium will explore clinical correlations and controversies in the area of atrial fibrillation.

The event, titled "Clinical Correlates and Clinical Controversies in Atrial Fibrillation: Has the Balance Shifted?" includes a registration and dinner portion as well as the scientific program, will take place from 6 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. on Monday, March 15, 2010 at The Hyatt Regency Atlanta Centennial Ballroom IV in Atlanta.

The activity is aimed at cardiologists and other healthcare professionals caring for patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF).

Educational objectives include defining the specific goals of AF therapy in different clinical circumstances; assessing the role of novel antiarrhythmic agents in AF; outlining criteria for selecting patients best suited for catheter ablation of AF; summarizing the rate vs. rhythm control debtate and discussing whether new approaches to rhythm control militate in its favor; and maximizing clinical benefit in the management of patients with nonvalvular AF.

The event is jointly sponsored by The University of Cincinnati and The Exeter Group.
