CASTLE-AF Trial Investigates Hard Primary Outcomes of Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation in Heart Failure Patients for the First Time

Cardiology experts will present conclusive results from various BIOTRONIK studies at the European Society of Cardiology’s ESC Congress 2017.

The presentations and discussions will shed light on recent advances in the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) in heart failure patients, evaluate patients’ response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and compare the safety and efficacy of drug-eluting stents (DES).

Held this year in Barcelona on August 26-30, the ESC Congress is the world’s largest cardiovascular congress, featuring more than 500 expert sessions. “BIOTRONIK is a recognized partner in supporting scientific research,” commented Manuel Ortega, Senior Vice President at BIOTRONIK. “At ESC Congress 2017, BIOTRONIK studies will contribute to the dialogue, reflecting on therapies that could have a significant impact on a variety of patient groups.”
