Czech-Japanese Online Seminar on the Introduction of an Innovated Laser Balloon Catheter

On November 11, a live transmission seminar took place in Na Homolce Hospital, during which the arrhythmology team of prof. Petr Neužil shared their experience with Japanese colleagues with the introduction of an innovated laser balloon catheter with robotic movement.

It is one of the methods that has an immediate and long-term effect in patients with atrial fibrillation, which is the most common arrhythmia, occurring in almost two percent of the population. Our hospital has the highest count of procedures with a balloon catheter in the world, so this seminar is organised by us.

The Japanese Heart Rhythm Society is the guarantor of the online seminar.
