We offer many different educational opportunities that build on the fundamentals of the Maze IV Course. Our courses focus on the rationale, efficiency and efficacy of performing advanced ablation procedures to include the first FDA approved minimally invasive Hybrid AF™ Therapy for persistent forms of atrial fibrillation (Afib). Our courses feature both didactic and hands-on training from highly experienced Afib surgeons and electrophysiologists covering a broad range of relevant topics;

  • Understand the relevant anatomy for performing a concomitant procedure
  • Review pathophysiology and key principles of atrial fibrillation treatment
  • Review society guidelines supporting surgical ablation and left appendage management
  • Discuss the rationale and indications for the Maze IV lesion set and Hybrid AF Minimally Invasive Therapy
  • Identify tips and tricks to improve procedural efficiency and clinical efficacy
  • Review alternate surgical approaches, energy sources and lesion sets associated with surgical treatment
  • List pre and postoperative care considerations of concomitant treatment
  • Review role and alternate techniques associated with left atrial appendage management
  • Understand the benefits of surgeon/ electrophysiologist collaboration in identifying, treating, and performing rhythm follow-up of atrial fibrillation patients

Advanced Ablation Course

The Advanced Arrhythmia course provides a unique two-day learning experience for healthcare providers interested in learning about the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of surgical ablation in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing cardiac surgery.

Advanced Hybrid Ablation Course

Hybrid AF Therapy with the EPi-Sense device is the first FDA approved minimally invasive device for the treatment of long-standing persistent Afib. We offer training opportunities for healthcare providers, to senior physicians looking to expand their treatment offerings.
