Clinical Electrophysiology: from ECG to CAGE

The objective of the two days is the updated review of the main conduction disorders and supraventricular tachycardias from diagnosis to treatment in dogs and cats.

The initial part of the conference will be focused on self-assessment on intra-atrial and intra-ventricular conduction disorders. This section is a practical workshop performed with Slido. During the section, various electrocardiographic tracings will be proposed to be analyzed with the help of multiple-choice questions. The next session is aimed at the theoretical illustration of intra-atrial conduction disturbances such as conduction delays of the Backman’s fascicle and conduction blocks of the Backman’s fascicle. Subsequently, the vectorial alterations present in the case of conduction disorders such as monofascicular blocks (right bundle branch block, anterior fascicular block), bifascicular (complete left bundle branch block, right bundle branch block associated with anterior fascicular block), trifascicular will be explained.
Based on recent publication, the different electrocardiographic patterns of ventricular pre-excitation in the dog will be illustrated. Ventricular pre-excitation is a syndrome characterized by short PQ interval, presence of delta wave, wide QRS complex, repolarization phase alterations. The analysis of the delta wave and the QRS complex allows the localization of the accessory pathway around the tricuspid annulus, distinguishing anterior accessory pathways from posterior accessory pathways, facilitating interpretation and ablative therapy during endocardial mapping. After an initial theoretical explanation, the day continues with a proposal for diagnostic algorithm test by all participants for the purpose of validation followed by publication of the algorithm itself.

In the next session, different supraventricular tachycardia will be illustrated. Supraventricular tachycardias are classically characterized by narrow QRS complex, with different signs of atrial deflection based on the tachycardia underlying mechanism. After an initial theoretical section, a proposal for diagnostic algorithm test by all participants will be proposed for publication. On the second day, topics of great interest and recently published will be addressed, such as the influence of the autonomic nervous system on the firing from the pulmonary veins and on the atrial myocardium. This topic will be addressed from the etiopathogenetic point of view and from the diagnostic point of view by means of the analysis of electrocardiographic tracings and by means of dynamic analysis with the interpretation of Holter monitoring.
After these explanations, new therapy topics in the electrophysiological field will be addressed, such as the 3D electrical mapping of the atrial and ventricular myocardium in order to precisely identify the origin of rhythm disturbances and treat them through the use of ablative techniques. In the last two section a review on supraventricular tachycardias with a practical workshop will be held to review all the electrocardiographic findings and their relationship with the underlying electrophysiological mechanism.
