Late Breaking Clinical Trials
HRS recognizes that exciting and rapidly evolving research may not have been concluded by the February 2021 abstract submission deadline. To highlight timely and novel work at Heart Rhythm 2021, the Program Committee opened opportunities for peer-reviewed sessions of late-breaking clinical trials to allow for later submissions and more emergent presentations.
The Late-Breaking Clinical Trial (LBCT) Submission Site is NOW CLOSED. The Program Committee will review all LBCT abstracts, and authors will be notified of their abstracts' status in early June 2021.
