Jannis Dickow MD

Resident Physician, Department of Cardiology, University Heart and Vascular Center, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany; Former Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Translational Interventional Electrophysiology Laboratory, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota

As a resident at the Department of Cardiology at the University Heart and Vascular Center in Hamburg, Dr. Jannis Dickow specializes in cardiac arrhythmia research. Already as a medical student and research assistant, Dr. Dickow has worked on projects focusing on the identification of individual risk factors in patients with complex arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia with and without structural heart disease, as well as imaging techniques, software tools, and strategies for arrhythmia substrate assessment in atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.

During his residency, Dr. Dickow enhanced his knowledge and research skills in cardiac electrophysiology and spent a year at the Mayo Translational Interventional Electrophysiology Laboratory at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. With fellowship funding from the German Heart Foundation, Dr. Dickow investigated alternative ablation methods such as non-invasive ablation of cardiac arrhythmias using proton irradiation and a novel saline-enhanced radiofrequency needle-tip ablation catheter for the treatment of refractory ventricular tachycardia.

To contribute to the continuous improvement of the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, Dr. Dickow has established a collaboration between the University Heart and Vascular Center Hamburg and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, to evaluate the generalizability of large prospective trials such as the Early Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation for Stroke Prevention Trial in routine practice.
