WELCOME
ADDRESS
Dear Colleagues,
I am delighted to welcome you to EHRA EUROPACE – CARDIOSTIM 2015, organised by the European Heart Rhythm
Association (EHRA) in collaboration with Cardiostim and the Working Groups on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology
and e-Cardiology.
The scientific content throughout the congress is exciting to say the least. The programme committee, expertly lead
by Prof. Cecilia Linde, Prof. Michael Glikson and Dr. Philippe Ritter, worked from a comprehensive list of topics that
really highlight the multidisciplinary and translational approach in modern electrophysiology, diagnosis of arrhythmias
and conduction disturbance. This excellent programme has been put together by leading experts from around the
world, and has been augmented by its alignment to the strategy of EHRA through the inclusion of sessions from the
Innovation, Young EP and Women in EP communities.
For the third edition in a row we have received more than 1 500 abstract submissions, and to celebrate this remarkable
result we have put a real emphasis on abstract presentations. The “Best Abstracts” have been given the visibility they
deserve by being on display for the whole congress, as well as a new format for the presentation of oral abstracts to
facilitate communication and encourage discussion. Also, there will be two Young Investigator Award sessions, with
winners announced during the Awards and Closing Ceremony. These sessions are a great opportunity to network
and exchange knowledge with both the abstract presenters and the rest of the audience.
The EHRA - ESC stand (B300) in the exhibition area is well worth a visit. EHRA membership gives delegates benefits
such as exclusive access to EHRA Members only sessions, entry to the Members’ Lounge where you can stop
for a coffee and meet with the EHRA Executive Board and get discounts on the congress registration fees. More
information is available on the EHRA - ESC stand as well as from the EHRA booths located throughout the congress
centre, including one in the registration area.
We also have a great selection of industry partners attending the congress, bringing with them examples of cutting
edge technology and medical advancements. Make sure to go and see them in the exhibition area.
As well as taking in all that the congress has to offer, allow yourself some time to explore Milan. Dating back 26
centuries, it is one of the oldest cities in Europe; it really is a fascinating city.
Thank you for being here with us in Milan, I wish you all a great congress and hope that you are able to make the most
of all the opportunities it brings you to learn and share.
Professor Karl-Heinz Kuck
EHRA President, 2013 - 2015

Catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias is among the most frequent indications for catheter ablation. In symptomatic patients ablation may be
performed as first line therapy. Thus, the procedure should be effective but also very safe. In this highly practical session the ablation procedure of
VT is explained in different types of substrates, showing the different techniques and approach in different pathologies (outflow tract, idioapathic,
ischaemic heart disease and Chagas disease). In their presentations the experts will particularly focus on potential problems and pitfalls and of
course give their recommendations how to prevent and handle
