Ralph J. Damiano, Jr. is the Evarts Graham Professor of Surgery, Chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, and Co-Chairman of the Heart and Vascular Center at Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, in St. Louis, MO. Dr. Damiano has published more than 450 articles in scientific journals and is a world-recognized expert in the field of arrhythmia surgery. He has been funded by the NIH for over 30 consecutive years, and his RO1, Surgical Treatment of Arrhythmias, has generated many important advances in our specialty, including the Cox-Maze procedure and a better understanding of atrial fibrillation and ablation devices. As a member of AATS since 1994, he collaborated with Dr. A. Marc Gillinov in 2017 to put together the Surgical Treatment for Arrhythmias and Rhythm Disorders course.
Since joining the Cleveland Clinic in 1997, Dr. A. Marc Gillinov has become one of the nation’s busiest heart surgeons. He is the Chair of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery and specializes in robotic and minimally-invasive heart valve repair and replacement. A prolific researcher, Dr. Gillinov has more than 400 scientific publications to his credit and has been instrumental in the development of medical devices and treatments that enhance the care of cardiac patients. Dr. Gillinov is thrilled and honored to work with the nation’s number one heart team (26 years in a row!) to improve the heart health of people from around the country and around the world.

Desired Learning Outcomes
At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the indications for the surgical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and rhythm disorders;
- Identify basic underlying mechanisms of arrhythmias, and apply techniques in cardiac recording and mapping, and clinical electrophysiology;
- Assess various operative techniques for the treatment of arrhythmias and discuss postprocedural cardiac monitoring and appropriate follow-up;
- Examine interventional approaches to atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, inappropriate sinus tachycardia, and transvenous and epicardial lead implantation and extraction techniques.
