AtriCure at EHRA 2023 – Improving Lives for the Most Complex Arrhythmia Patients

Join us at EHRA 2023 in Barcelona to discover the latest evidence and techniques for the treatment of AF with Hybrid AF™ Therapies. During the 20th EHRA edition, you will have the opportunity to join top-class educational programs on how Hybrid AF™ Therapies can address unmet clinical needs in complex AF treatment, as well as gain hands-on experience on “Epicardial Options for Arrhythmia Ablation” in the EHRA Simulation Village. AtriCure is also scheduling an invitation-only event to display the latest prototypes and innovation projects in the field of electrophysiology. We also invite you to visit the AtriCure event booth C500 to learn more about AtriCure therapies and programs.

Innovation Suite – Sunday 16 April from 18:00 to 20:00

In this educational event, you will be able to discover the latest technologies for Hybrid AF™ Therapies, learn about future developments, and explore how our innovative devices and therapies could be considered for the treatment of the most complex arrhythmias, including Atrial Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia and Brugada Syndrome.

This event is upon invitation only, please contact your AtriCure representative to attend.

Venue: Hotel Santos Porta Fira Barcelona

CEASE-AF trial results

To be presented in the Late Breaking Science – Day 2 session
Monday 17 April
14:00 / Lecture room 1

Join the Late Breaking Science session to hear the Principal Investigators disclosing the CEASE-AF Efficacy and Safety Endpoints results. CEASE-AF is a perspective, multicenter, randomized trial comparing the efficacy and safety of Hybrid Total Thoracoscopic Ablation Therapy vs standard catheter ablation, in preventing the recurrence of AF in symptomatic, drug refractory patients with persistent or longstanding persistent AF.
