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 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.
