Joining our moderator on this CME webcast is Dr. Jamie Macklin, who is an assistant professor of both internal medicine and pediatrics at the Ohio State University and is the section chief for hospital medicine at Ohio State University Hospital East.

To Ablate Or Not To Ablate: Current Management of Atrial Fibrillation

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 CME Webcast Discusses To Ablate Or Not To Ablate Current Management of Atrial Fibrillation. In 1998, Dr. Michel Hice-uh-gaire, a cardiologist in Bordeaux, France, determined that the electrical triggers for atrial fibrillation were most commonly located in the pulmonary veins and that he could cure atrial fibrillation by ablating these triggers with a catheter. In the 2 decades since, ablation has a key element in the cardiologist’s toolbox to treat atrial fibrillation. But which patients are best served by medical treatment and which ones are best treated with catheter ablation? On this CME webcast, we’re going to explore this question. Joining our moderator is cardiac electrophysiologist and Professor of Internal Medicine at the Ohio State University, Dr. John Hummel.
