We spoke to Professor Faizel Osman (Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist, University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, Coventry, UK) who gave us an update about the recent new ESC Guidelines for Atrial Fibrillation and the upcoming Arrhythmia Alliance Heart Rhythm Updates 2021.
- What are the most important new recommendations in the 2020 ESC atrial fibrillation (AF) guidelines, and how will they impact the day-to-day management of patients? (0.21)
- According to the guidelines, what factors should be considered when designing an individualised care plan for a patient with AF? (1.03)
- What do you expect to be your personal highlights of the upcoming Arrhythmia Alliance series of online meetings? (2.03)

Ole De Backer, TCT 2022: FEops HEARTguide™ Computational Modelling for left atrial appendage (LAA) closure, the PREDICT LAA trial
The PREDICT LAA trial aimed to examine whether cardiac computed tomography- based FEops HEARTguide™ computational modelling would benefit clinical outcomes when planning for left atrial appendage (LAA) closure. In this touchCARDIO interview, we speak with Dr Ole De Backer (Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark) to discuss the PREDICT LAA trial and the next steps. […]
Ole De Backer, TCT 2022: The use of cardiac computed tomography-based patient-specific computational simulations in left atrial appendage (LAA) closure
When performing percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure, challenges arise that impact clinical outcomes and cardiac computed tomography (CCT)- based patient-specific computational simulations provide device-host interactions. In this touchCARDIO interview, we speak with Dr Ole De Backer (Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark) to discuss these challenges and the use of cardiac computed tomography (CCT)- […]
