New Delhi: The 11th edition of IHRS’s annual conference was recently held in New Delhi. The prominent and special guest speaker was Prof. (Dr.) Mohsin Hossain, Professor of Cardiology, National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Prof. (Dr.) Mohsin Hossain of NICVD, Bangladesh was a special invitee at IHRS 2019 who spoke on 3D Mapping under Newer Innovations session. NICVD is Bangladesh’s most premier state of the art institute for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases to establish most modern cardiovascular care services and also to train manpower in the field. Dr Hossain is the name to reckon with in Bangladesh when it comes to Arrhythmia and EP who is continuously adopting newer technologies and innovations in this field.
“I am delighted to have been a part of IHRS’s annual conference in India and had a great opportunity to meet fellow physicians from India on this enormous knowledge-sharing platform. While Bangladesh is fast progressing on the path of accessing what the world has to offer in terms of newer technologies, we need to undertake training and skill-building for our young doctors” says Prof (Dr) Mohsin Hossain
With the advancement of technology, the 3D Electro anatomical Navigation System provides a physician with three-dimensional views of the inside of the chamber of the heart and thereby helps the Electrophysiologists for better treatment modalities. The Orion catheter with the specialty of its design provides the physician to map the anatomy and subsequent ablation of the affected area many times faster. It also reduces the fluoro time during the procedure to 4 mins which is a great advantage for both patients and physicians getting minimal exposure to radiation, minimizing any chances of carcinogenic complications later on.
Indian Heart Rhythm Society (IHRS) was formed in the year 2005 in India on the lines of HRS, U.S.A. by illustrious names in the field of Electro Physiology (EP) and has thus become an apex body to further the cause of heart rhythm management in India by continuously working on knowledge sharing among experts and practitioners. IHRS’s annual conference draws EP specialists from all over the country and abroad to reflect upon newer innovations, do case-based studies, perform live cases and also run a fellowship program for young EP’s. This is one of the sensational inventions of this decade for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
