St. Luke’s Medical Center electrophysiologist addresses international atrial fibrillation seminarThursday, July 03, 2003MILWAUKEE, Wis, – Jasbir Sra, M.D. was a keynote presenter at an international conference designed to bring together clinicians and scientists to stimulate research and development of atrial fibrillation treatments. The four-day conference entitled “Atrial Fibrillation Implications of Basic Research and Novel Curative Approaches” was held last week at the University of Tubingen, Germany.
Cardiac leaders from across the globe were present for Dr. Sra’s presentation, “CT Scan Imaging and Regulation for the Future of Atrial Fibrillation Ablation.” Dr. Sra’s current research efforts are focused on the treatment of atrial fibrillation, the most common sustained arrhythmia in patients. The conference was sponsored by the European Commission, German Cardiac Society and the Working Group on Arrhythmias of the European Society of Cardiology.
Dr. Sra is an internationally renowned expert in the field of electrophysiology and has presented more than 100 abstracts at national meetings of the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology and the National Association of Pacing and Electrophysiology. His contributions to innovation and research include becoming the first U.S. clinical investigator to implant an atrial defibrillator, as well as the first to implant a multi-programmable defibrillator for ventricular arrhythmia in the Indian subcontinent. Dr. Sra has written more than 60 original manuscripts, 50 reviews and several book chapters and has published landmark articles in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Annals of Internal Medicine.
