Software, Catheter Enable Faster 3-D Mapping, Ablation


June 24, 2010

The CartoXPress Software Module and the Lasso NAV Circular Mapping Catheter are designed for use with the Carto XP Mapping System to treat cardiac arrythmias.

The new software allows electrophysiologists to visualize the Lasso catheter and use the Fast Anatomical Mapping (FAM) feature that, up until now, was only available on Biosense Webster’s more recent Carto 3 mapping and ablation system. FAM rapidly and accurately creates high-resolution, Computed tomography (CT)-like maps, and also permits detailed visual enhancement of a specific area of interest within the heart.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the product in June 2010.
