EP Navigator Eases Challenging Arrhythmia Cases

Feb. 1, 2007 — Royal Philips Electronics has announced the commercial release of its new EP Navigator, which Philips calls an easy-to-use, innovative imaging tool to support clinicians in the treatment of complex cardiac rhythm disorders.

EP Navigator combines pre-interventional 3D CT images of a patients’ cardiac anatomy with live X-ray fluoroscopy catheter position information in a single image. The result is easier navigation through the heart during complex procedures, enabling physicians to work more intuitively and with greater confidence.

“EP Navigator allows me to instantly confirm the position of all catheters with respect to the patient’s anatomy, in real-time, on a single image,” said Michael Orlov, M.D., Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston, the first clinical user of the new product. “It helped us to confirm difficult anatomy on several occasions when fluoroscopy and electro-anatomical mapping were ambiguous.”

Dr. Orlov indicated that image registration is user friendly and allows for easy adjustments when necessary. He said that in complex ablation procedures, maintaining good contact between the ablation catheter and the left atrial wall is important.

“EP navigator is an easy to use tool to visualize catheter position and help maintain this contact. The use of the tool will likely allow us to perform procedures with more confidence and efficiency.”

The EP navigator is available as an option with Philips Allura Xper family of cath lab solutions.
