Clinical anatomy of the heart for successful arrhythmia treatment

Hands-on anatomical workshop with live video-demonstration and heart specimen dissection
20-21 September 2019, Helsinki, Finland

This unique course will provide specific knowledge in anatomy and morphology for practical electrophysiologists and everybody who interesting in improving their qualification in techniques of electrophysiological procedures.

Specials of this course:

  • hands-on anatomical workshop with dissection of fresh-fixed human heart specimens;
  • specific presentations-lectures with slides and simultaneous live video-demonstration of human plastinated heart specimens (on 2 screens);
  • Tips and tricks for successful catheter ablation of complex arrhythmias and avoiding complications from world-famous experts in EP.

Target audience: Medium and advanced level einterventional electrophysiologists as well as allied professionals with interest in techniqies of EP proceures.

5 TYPES OF EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES:

  1. Lectures with slides and simultaneous live video-demonstration of heart specimens. (on 2 screens or picture in picture). One present slides and second (Max) present through the camera.
  2. Lectures with slides 15 min and then 15 min live video-demonstration and discussion.
  3. Hands-on dissection of fresh-fixed heart specimens (20 persons for 10 specimens) divided in 4 groups. Every group has personal instructor from the faculty. MD present step by step dissection trough the camera and show anatomy and techniques of procedures. Instructors help participants to dissect, help to recognize different anatomical structures, show techniques of procedures, share tips and tricks and answer questions.
  4. Normal slides presentations
  5. Workshop with simulators with demonstration heart specimens.
