Bart Mulder is a cardiologist with a focus on invasive treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. He did his PhD at the University of Groningen on the treatment of atrial fibrillation in patients with heart failure. His other topics of interest are invasive treatment of atrial fibrillation and novel therapies for cardiac arrhythmias. He is involved in the atrial fibrillation focused research and clinical ablation studies currently ongoing in the UMCG. His research is supported by the European Society of Cardiology council for stroke research grant.
We are currently investigating tissue characteristics of patients with atrial fibrillation in the RACE V-trial, further exploring risk factors that may help to identify which patients fail after hybrid or catheter ablation treatment for atrial fibrillation, and are exploring the contribution of integration of cardiac imaging with electroanatomical mapping to guide catheter ablation.
