The 11th edition of IHRS’s annual conference
began in New Delhi from 15th November‘ 2019 and among the prominent
and special guest speakers was Prof.
(Dr.) Mohsin Hossain, Professor of Cardiology, National Institute of Cardiovascular
Diseases (NICVD), Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Indian Heart Rhythm Society (IHRS), was formed in 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.
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 treatment of cardiovascular diseases to
establish most modern cardiovascular care services and also to train the
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 be a part of IHRS’s annual conference in
India and am looking forward to speaking on 3d mapping and meet fellow
physicians from India on this great 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” said Prof (Dr.) Mohsin Hossain.
With the advancement of technology,
the 3D Electro Anatomical Navigation System provided a physician with a
three-dimensional view of the inside of the chamber of the heart and thereby
helped the Electrophysiologists for better treatment modalities. The Orion
cathetered with its specialty of its design provides the physician to map the
anatomy and subsequent ablation of the affected area many times faster.
It also reduced the fluoro time
during the procedure to 4 mins which is to a great advantage for both patients
and physicians getting minimal exposure to radiation, minimizing any chances of
carcinogenic complications later on.
This was one of the sensational
inventions of this decade for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
