  • Risks during pericardial aspects and how consideration of the anatomy can help to reduce complications
  • Unpublished reconstruction work to understand the 3D nature of the pericardial space and the sinuses

These lectures were given as part of the Virtual #EPFellowsConference during the Covid Pandemic in 2020 to provide an ongoing learning opportunity for EP trainees. The videos were recorded from the Zoom live meetings and produced by Dr Nishant Verma (@NishantVermaMD), Associate Professor of Medicine, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Northwestern University. He also organised and co-ordinated the conference and we are very grateful for his effort and hard work. The content is expected to be valuable to subspeciality trainees but also as a refresher to Consultants.

Permissions to host on the BHRS site were given to Dr Nikhil Ahluwalia, BHRS trainee rep. The opinions expressed are those of the speaker and do not necessarily reflect UK guidelines or those of BHRS. These videos are for educational purposes only for healthcare professionals.
