International Symposium on Cryoablation for Arrhythmias

NOTE:  This Symposium has been canceled.

On behalf of the planning committee for the International Symposium on Cryoablation for Arrhythmias we regret to inform you that the conference has been canceled due to unforseen circumstances.  We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

 

 

 

The Baylor International Symposium on Cryoablation for Arrhythmias is designed to educate the physician about the etiology and causes of atrial fibrillation, its clinical consequences for their patients and to provide a review of various evidence based management strategies of care. This activity will emphasize the role of cryoablation as a curative strategy for atrial fibrillation and other types of supraventricular arrhytmias, and will review the data supporting the recently FDA approved cryoballoon ablation of atrial fibrillation.
