Reserve Your Seat for this event.

 

The purpose of this webinar is to support participants interested in advancing their knowledge in RF ablation practice. Participants interested in treating their patients with RF technology will be able to learn about one of the latest innovations - DiamondTemp – the Real-Time, Temperature-Controlled Ablation Technology. Variety of complex cardiac ablation procedures will be presented during the webinar and early user experience will be shared highlighting the advantages of DiamondTemp Ablation System. In addition, the results of the DIAMOND-AF global registry will be discussed and presented to the audience.

Dr Tarvinder Dhanjal
Electrophysiologist, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, UK

Dr Dhanjal is trained in all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management including catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF), ventricular tachycardia (VT) and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, pacemaker / defibrillator implantation, cardiac resynchronization therapy and left atrial appendage occlusion. His specialist interest is ablation of complex arrhythmias especially AF and life-threatening VT. Dr Dhanjal has published in numerous scientific papers. He has received several awards and media recognition for his research and clinical work. Over the past few years, he has developed an inter-hospital research project investigating mechanisms of ventricular tachycardia.

 

Prof Daniel Steven
Electrophysiologist, University Hospital Cologne, Cologne, DE

Prof Steven is the head of Electrophysiology at the University Hospital of Cologne. Prof Steven’s skills and expertise are in atrial fibrillation, heart arrhythmias and catheter ablation. He’s had recent publications in several leading medical journals, including the International Journal of Cardiology, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Clinical Research in Cardiology, Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology, and the European Heart Journal.

 

Dr Daniel Rodriguez
Electrophysiologist, Hospital Doce de Octubre, Madrid, ES

Dr Rodriguez is a Consultant in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Hospital Doce de Octubre in Madrid. He is also the Founder, Co-Director and Coordinator of the Master´s program in Cardiovascular Emergencies at the University of Alcalá de Henares and director of numerous training courses in cardiology as well as being a lecturer at the Master´s program in Management of Complex Arrythmias at the University of Alcalá, Madrid. His research career, which has earned him the distinction of Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology, includes more than 40 scientific communications to national and international congresses and publications in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and the European Heart Journal, amongst others.

 

Prof Gian Battista Chierchia
Electrophysiologist, University Hospital Brussels (UZ Brussels), BE

Prof Chierchia is Vice-Head of the Heart Rhythm Management Centre. His skills and expertise cover the entire electrophysiology spectrum including all types of heart arrhythmias and catheter ablation techniques. UZ Brussels Hearth Rhythm Management Centre has outstanding experience treating cardiac arrythmias using the most innovative techniques and Prof Chierchia plays a key role in those processes. He and his team continuously publish scientific materials in various leading medical journals, including the European Heart Journal, Herz, Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology and PACE.

 

Ensuring temperature accuracy and truly reliable temperature feedback are fundamental for effective lesion creation during RF ablation procedures. The faculty will discuss the procedural use, best practices, advantages of DiamondTemp technology and its impact on daily clinical practice. Procedural efficiencies recently demonstrated by this system in the DIAMOND-AF study will also be highlighted during the event.

The webinar aims to engage cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiac physiologists, cath lab nurses, cath lab managers.

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has evolved since its inception more than 40 years ago. There have been major advances in technology, with adaptations made across all facets of the procedure, from stent engineering to adjunctive physiology and intracoronary imaging. Despite this progress, the mainstay for all PCI procedures remains fluoroscopic X-ray imaging guidance, with manual manipulation of guidewires, balloons, stents and other devices.
