        The Jilin ICE CLUB Youth Federation is a team of young electrophysiologists led by He Yuquan, Deputy Director of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine of China-Japan Union Hospital of Jilin University, with the strong support of Beijing Anzhen Hospital and General Hospital of Northern Theater Command. Through bringing together young talents in electrophysiology in Jilin province, the Federation aims to promote the application of ICE technologies to improve radiofrequency ablation of complex cardiac arrhythmia in the province.

        As an important sub-specialty of cardiovascular treatment, electrophysiology has developed rapidly in recent years. Therefore, new techniques in this field are emerging. The clinical application of ICE in radiofrequency catheter ablation is an example. The technology is regarded as a powerful weapon for electrophysiologists in the new era, as it perfectly reveals the anatomy of the heart, bringing possibility to treat complex arrhythmia. It greatly improves the accuracy and success rate of the procedure.

        For more than 30 years, the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine has been upholding the spirit of the Third Clinical College, “Save lives with a heart of philanthropy and great medical skills”, and passed it down from generation to generation. Especially in recent years, under the leadership of Director Yang Ping, the department has committed to exploring new technologies and therapies, thereby making a lot of achievements. The establishment of the Jilin ICE CLUB Youth Federation, led by Deputy Director He Yuquan, is an accurate reflection of the spirit of the Third Clinical College. Meanwhile, the 100-unit application of ICE-assisted radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation serves as both a milestone and a new starting point of such spirit. With the support of the Jilin ICE CLUB Youth Federation, the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine will continue to make contributions to the development of electrophysiology in Jilin Province.
