Stereotaxis reaches atrial fibrillation procedures milestone

Stereotaxis : 25 June, 2007  (New Product)
Stereotaxis has achieved an important milestone by enabling 1000 Atrial Fibrillation procedures to be performed worldwide with its proprietary Niobe magnetic navigation system
Atrial Fibrillation is a complex arrhythmia, typically originating in the left atrium of the heart, affecting millions of patients worldwide.

'The Stereotaxis system has established a very strong record of safety and efficacy in the mapping and ablation of arrhythmias', said Bevil Hogg, CEO of Stereotaxis.

'We now expect to greatly expand our left sided procedures following the recent regulatory approval for higher powered catheters in Europe and in the USA, and to see a concomitant increase in overall clinical utilisation rates'.

'We are using the Stereotaxis system daily for the ablation of routine and complex arrhythmia', said Jeffrey Olgin, MD, chief, Cardiac Electrophysiology, University of California San Francisco.

'In particular, the system has made left sided procedures easier, with excellent clinical results'.

'The new 8mm ablation Catheter is further improving results by providing excellent contact and higher power delivery'.

'The Niobe system has the potential to become the new standard of care for complex and left side ablation procedures'.

The Stereotaxis partnered irrigated catheter, which has received CE mark approval in Europe, was recently tested by physicians from the Cleveland Clinic'.

'This magnetic irrigated Catheter was able to create excellent linear lesion sets'.

'The results indicate that the magnetic system may provide more consistent Catheter contact without excessive pressure'.

'We are already using the Niobe system as part of our daily clinical practice and look forward to gaining clinical experience with this irrigated catheter', said J David Burkhardt, MD, FACC of the Cleveland Clinic.
