Real-Time, Temperature-Controlled RF Ablation
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.

NOW FDA APPROVED:
On January 29th Medtronic announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of the DiamondTemp™ Ablation (DTA) system which treats patients with recurrent, symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) and who have been unresponsive to drug therapy. The DiamondTemp system is the first FDA-approved, temperature-controlled, irrigated radiofrequency (RF) ablation system with diamonds currently available to deliver ablations.
This webinar is supported by:
