Annual Leonard N. Horowitz Memorial Lecture: Important Lessons Learned about NICM from Mapping and Ablation of VPCs and VT

In this video, renowned electrophysiologist and researcher Francis Marchlinski, MD, examines nonischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) in the context of lessons learned from mapping and ablation of ventricular premature complexes (VPCs), and ventricular tachycardia (VT). Illustrating his discussion with case reports, clinical trials (many performed by the Electrophysiology Program at Penn Medicine) and personal history, Dr. Marchlinski analyzes the pathophysiology of NICM and the progress in evoking its resolution brought about by advances in mapping technology. Dr. Marchlinski is the Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at Penn Medicine.
