September 11, 2007 - Stereotaxis Inc. said more than 10,000 procedures have been performed using the Stereotaxis system, which utilizes advanced, magnet-guided navigational technology intended to help electrophysiologists and cardiologists treat complex arrhythmias and safely perform other interventional procedures.
To date, clinicians at more than 60 hospitals worldwide have used the Stereotaxis system to perform more than 2,000 percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) and other guidewire-based vascular procedures; approximately 6,000 right-sided electrophysiology mapping and ablation procedures; and nearly 2,000 atrial fibrillation and other complex left-sided procedures, including 400 for ventricular tachycardia.
"As one of the largest electrophysiology practices in the country, we regard our Stereotaxis Niobe system as an important component of our daily treatment of a broad spectrum of arrhythmias," said Dr. Raul Weiss of Ohio State University Hospital. "We are particularly impressed with the superior performance and safety of the system in challenging cases, and we believe that Stereotaxis will revolutionize the treatment of complex arrhythmias, setting a new paradigm for patient care."
