Catheter and Surgical Therapies for Atrial Fibrillation (CAST-AF)
Dates: August 21-22, 2020
Location: Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago | Chicago, IL
Details: This conference has attracted an international community of leading interventional electrophysiologists and cardiac arrhythmia surgeons, to present the contemporary and most advanced techniques for both the catheter and surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation. In addition, current recommendations for the management of the left atrial appendage will be presented and debated and the results of new LAA occlusion devices will be discussed. The format for the conference consists of plenary lectures, plenary roundtables, and plenary debates on topics of controversy as well as extensive specialty interventional EP and surgical breakout sessions. A special invited plenary lecture will also be delivered by Professor Amiran Revishvili of Moscow, Russian Federation, who is both an interventional EP and a cardiac arrhythmia surgeon. Audience participation will be by electronic means at the end of the plenary roundtables and plenary debates.

2021

Arrhythmias and the Heart: A Cardiovascular Update
Dates: February 1-5, 2021
Location: Grand Hyatt Kauai | Koloa, HI
Details: The program highlights key topics in cardiology to keep the practitioner current, with an emphasis on cases, updates, and clinical guidelines. The diagnosis, management, and prevention of common rhythm disorders, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular arrhythmias will be reviewed along with challenging aspects of congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, and myocardial disease.  Special sessions will highlight ECG pearls useful in all aspects of cardiology. There will be an emphasis on patient management, case-based presentations, and panel discussion sessions to provide interaction between the faculty and attendees.  Mayo Clinic and guest faculty will share “pearls” to aid in the evaluation and assessment of patients with commonly seen cardiovascular diseases.
