Technology Integrated to Enhance Treatment of Cardiac Arrhythmias, Provide Reference Point

 

June 6, 2006

A combination of technologies can enhance a doctor’s ability to treat patients with abnormal heart rhythms. The NaviStar RMT Diagnostic/Ablation Steerable Tip Catheter has been FDA cleared for integration with the Niobe Magnetic Navigation System and the Carto RMT.

The integrated products enable electrophysiologists to steer a catheter remotely, map the electrical activity of the heart and ablate targeted areas that require treatment.

In addition, the catheter provides a reliable reference point within the Carto RMT System to ensure an accurate visual framework for mapping diagnostic procedures.
