Use of the DiamondTemp™ System in Atrial and Ventricular Procedures
Moderated by Prof Dipen Shah (Geneva, CH), this broadcast will illustrate three real-life atrial and ventricular procedures using DiamondTemp™ Temperature Controlled Ablation system. The cases will be presented by Prof Philipp Sommer (Heart and Diabetes Center NRW, DE) and Prof Christian Sohns (Heart and Diabetes Center NRW, DE) and followed with a discussion where they will share their first-hand experience in the procedures.
Participants of this broadcast can witness first-hand the advantages that come with the use of real-time temperature-controlled technology – the DiamondTemp™ RF Ablation System. Accurate tissue temperature sensing in real-time, unique diamond tip properties and clean electrograms from a split tip add value to a variety of complex cardiac ablation procedures. Atrial and ventricular cases will be presented and discussed by the renowned faculty. Participants can engage in the discussion and interact with the faculty through live Q&A during the broadcast.

Prof Philipp Sommer is Director of the Clinic for Electrophysiology and Professor at the Heart and Diabetes Center North Rhine-Westphalia, University clinic of Bochum, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany.
Prof Sommer is an invited speaker, media correspondent, and editorial board member active in peer review at several high-impact journals including Europace, JACC, JACC EP, European Heart Journal, The Lancet. He is member of the scientific committee of “Herzschrittmachertherapie + Elektrophysiologie”, German Journal of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology and Member of the EHRA Scientific Program Committee 2018 – 2020.
In 2008 Professor Sohns was a Resident in the Department of Cardiology and Pneumology at the Georg-August University in Göttingen, in 2015, Professor Sohns became senior physician specializing in electrophysiology in the cardiology department of the Asklepios Klinik St. Georg in Hamburg before becoming Deputy Clinic Director and Senior Physician at the Clinic for Rhythmology / Electrophysiology, Heart and Diabetes Center NRW, Ruhr University Bochum, Bad Oeynhausen.
Professor Dipen Shah is trained as an interventional cardiologist in India, then as an electrophysiology fellow in Bordeaux with Professor Haissaguerre. He spent 6 years in Bordeaux, performing clinical research related to the catheter ablation of atrial flutter, and fibrillation as well as participating in the development of pulmonary vein isolation. He joined the University Hospitals Geneva as a staff electrophysiologist in 2002 and is currently director of the electrophysiology unit. His current interests include catheter ablation and lesion estimation technologies as well as ablation strategies for atypical flutter, persistent AF and analysis of the underlying mechanisms.
