Six TCAI doctors, researchers and staff returned to Austin this week – well-informed about their field, well-acknowledged by their peers, and just a little jet-lagged.

They came from Hong Kong, where they had participated in CardioRhythm 2011.

This biennial global conference – organized by Hong Kong College of Cardiology and Chinese Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology – featured presentations by world leaders on the latest heart-health advances, from ablation and other a-fib treatments, to implantable-device technologies, to new meds.

Not only did TCAIers share their expertise with colleagues from around the world, but they also were honored for their work:

TCAI senior researcher Dr. Luigi Di Biase earned the conference’s Best Abstract award and TCAI researcher Dr. Rong Bai earned the Best Poster award for their work in endocardial/epicardial ablation of ventricular tachycardia patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia [say that three times fast!] – an emerging technique to help patients with a dangerous arrhythmia due to heart muscle replaced by fat or fibrous tissue.

Gong xi [congratulations], TCAI!
