New variable radius mapping catheter offers greater manoeuverability

St Jude Medical : 14 May, 2008  (New Product)
St Jude Medical has launched the Reflexion Spiral X variable radius mapping catheter which will provide physicians with greater manoeuverability, stability and control when used in the left atrium for the mapping of abnormal atrial heart arrhythmias, including Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
Circular mapping catheters are designed to measure electrical activity at the opening of the pulmonary veins, which often are the sites where AF originates in the left atrium. The new Reflexion Spiral X Catheter is the first variable radius, circular mapping Catheter that features two-way 180-degree deflection to provide greater reach and versatility in challenging anatomic situations.

The increased versatility provided by the bi-directional 180-degree steering lessens the risk that the physician would not be able to access an area of the chamber to capture the electrical information properly.

The new decapolar (10 electrode) Catheter also features the ComfortGrip handle to facilitate one-handed control of the Catheter (to improve ease of use) and modifications to the Catheter shaft and circular hoop to provide excellent stability.

'As a pioneer in the atrial fibrillation field, we're committed to improving the effectiveness of diagnosing and treating AF, and to helping physicians improve patient outcomes,' said Jane J Song, president of the St Jude Medical Atrial Fibrillation Division.
