The theme of DGK this year is „Rhythm for Life.“ The current state of the art risk stratification for sudden cardiac death, as well as the technical advances that have been made regarding its prevention will be discussed. New mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis will be presented, as will the role of pluripotent stem cells (iPS) in diagnostics and potential therapies. An additional core topic is the interaction between “heart and brain, ” which is relevant for many cardiovascular diseases.
