The Medical College of Wisconsin
1) Sign-up will be available at the door for those who haven't yet signed up and wish to attend. However, the number of pig hearts for dissection is limited and may not be available for same-day add-ons.
2) There will be a full closure (eastbound and westbound) of Watertown Plank Road just east of Hwy 100. Detour signs with the blue “H” symbol will direct traffic around the closure at Watertown Plank, Wisconsin Avenue, Hwy 100 and North Avenue. This will most effect people driving to/from the hotel. Access to the MCW campus should not be directly affected.
This is a one-day symposium on Ventricular Tachycardia, with a focus on catheter (endocardial and epicardial) ablation treatment of VT. It features nationally and internationally recognized experts on these topics. There will also be a hands-on, guided pig-heart dissection with a focus on ablation-related cardiac anatomy.
