Rotors and spiral activations


Detection of rotors has become the most prominent topic in current ablation procedures. Many important aspects, however, have not been sufficiently addressed. These include spatio-temporal stability, required number of rotations, representation in electrograms etc. Incentive enough to start an intense discussion about the manyfold aspects of rotors and spiral activations!

Program topics include:

  • Are rotors driving atrial fibrillation? And what is based on evidence?
  • Rotors: Stability, location, and ablation
  • Challenges in detection and visualization of rotors and unstable conduction patterns

Panel discussion:

  • How to detect rotors?
  • Is every rotor driving atrial fibrillation? Is every atrial fibrillation driven by rotors?
