Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System Allows for Effective Navigation


August 28, 2008

Stereotaxis will feature its Stereotaxis magnetic navigation system, designed to allow physicians to more effectively navigate catheters, guidewires and other magnetic interventional devices.

Computer control automates the movement of these devices, allowing for safety and efficiency.

The system supports refinement of current electrophysiology techniques. Complex arrhythmias can reportedly treated more predictably using precise navigation, automation and 3D image integration. The system is designed to enable rapid left ventricular lead placements, more predictable replacement times and efficient evaluation of multiple pacing sites.

The Stereotaxis magnetic navigation system also enables for reportedly effective navigation of smaller, more tortuous and /or less accessible coronary vessels.
