R. - New York, USANew recommendations on palpitation management and CRT implantation and follow-up will be presented. Formerly recognized• General Discussionindications will be revisited, such as vaso-vagal syncope, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or Brugada syndrome. Lots ofdebates will be organized as shows and you’ll be able to give your opinion through voting systems in many of the programs settled bythe most famous experts.What is unique in Cardiostim is the atmosphere that brings more and more people to this friendly meeting whereattendees can freely express their opinion.That is probably why, despite the international financial crisis, more than a thousand abstracts have been received from all over theworld, and especially from countries that were not present until now in our congress, demonstrating the interest of colleagues keen tocome to Nice to present their data and debate! Congratulations to all authors for their scientific contribution.The EHRA Program Committee members, conducted by Andreas Goette (Leipzig – Germany), participated actively in the abstractselection in addition to the Cardiostim members. Consequently, each abstract has been reviewed by at least 6 experts. The SelectionCommittee rejected 43 % abstracts overall. This year, a smaller number of oral abstract sessions is proposed to enhance the qualityof the presented material. I must congratulate and thank everyone for these difficult tasks!As can be seen along this Advance Program, the global result of the combination of EHRA sessions with the traditional programsproposed by our American friends and the Cardiostim Team is a high standard program that one will remind as the most completeand attractive ever!Our task is to translate this knowledge into understandable and useful information for clinical practice. This is whyCardiostim also proposes educational sessions based on case presentations in the general program as well as dedicated sessions.With the same logics, specific sessions will be dedicated to technicians and nurses.Next June, you will enjoy Cardiostim!

  4. 4. Cardiostim 2012Congress Highlights in 2012THE EHRA PROGRAM An extensive program was designed by the Scientific Program Committee of EHRA, and will include a total number of 30 sessions.HIGH-TECH ADVANCES Among many others, four sessions will focus on new technologies that will impact our practice in the future with the following topics: understanding of arrhythmia mechanisms and signal processing, computer simulation in electrophysiology and CRT.HIGH STANDARD EDUCATION Educational material is proposed in all programs, based on Case presentations. In the EP and ablation section, a specific program is proposed by George Klein on Saturday June 16. In addition a Program is given in French on devices, and two sessions are dedicated to technicians and nurses.EPDatabank by cardiostim New in Cardiostim! Educational material is available on for your own purposes. Epidemiologic information, ECG tracings, EGMs, etc… can be downloaded for free! Don’t hesitate to submit yours!
