About VA 2017

For three days in the suggestive scenario of S. Giorgio Island and the amazing Venice lagoon, the historical workshop of Venice Arrhythmias will come to life, showing all its tradition of excellence and innovation.
All the aspects of cardiac arrhythmias (from epidemiology, to pathophysiology, natural history, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment) will be simultaneously dealt with in different rooms by over 300 invited speakers, all internationally renowned leaders in the field of clinical arrhythmology, electrophysiology and cardiac pacing.

Participants will improve their medical know-how by interacting/networking with the leading experts in the field of arrhythmias and will be updated on the most recent developments and trends in the field.
A variety of new sessions and events will be presented at the upcoming edition, especially thanks to a wide range of interactive and practical sessions, including Meet the pioneers. It’s a great time to share and discuss all together, following the friendly line which is one of the strengths that characterize VA in 2017.

In this edition, more than ever, we want to encourage the young and emerging leaders to be active protagonists of the event: come and see our mentoring program!
The main themes of our XV edition will be, among others:

  • arrhythmogenic hereditary syndromes
  • arrhythmias in the elderly
  • antithrombotic therapy for cardiac arrhythmias
  • cardiac arrhythmia surgery: where are we and where are we going
  • go back to the basic EP; HF, CRT and more: evolution of technology and impact on the outcome
  • how to predict and prevent sudden death in different clinical settings
  • lead extraction and device infection 2017 update; leadless pacemaker: pearls and pitfalls
