Dr. Vigneshwar Kasirajan, along with Drs. Kenneth Ellenbogen and Jayanthi Koneru have been working with Atricure in the development of a dual epicardial and endocardial hybrid ablation procedure (DEEP) to address chronic atrial fibrillation.
On June 16, 2015 the CHSPS hosted the first of multiple conferences to train surgical and medical teams in the performance of this multidisciplinary maze procedure. The conference featured a live feed from the OR moderated by a cardiac surgeon, followed by a hands on cadaver lab. Participants included electrophysiologists, cardiac surgeons and industry representations.
The next DEEP Conference is scheduled for late October.
