Bi-Direction EP Catheter Cleared for Reprocessing

June 10, 2010 – The single-use EZ Steer bi-directional catheters are now cleared for reprocessing through Ascent. The reprocessing of this device enables electrophysiology (EP) labs to save money and reduce waste, saving up to 50 percent of the cost of the original device while diverting single-use devices from landfills.

The EZ Steer catheter, manufactured by Biosense Webster, is indicated for catheter-based atrial and ventricular electrophysiological mapping procedures to treat arrhythmias. Easy to use and operate, the bi-directional design provides two curves in one catheter for economic and procedural versatility.

“Ascent is a true partner that is always bringing new products to market that provides tremendous cost savings to the hospital,” said Colin Vaughn, RN and clinical coordinator of the cardiac cath lab at Mountain Vista Medical Center in Mesa, Ariz. “We are pleased with this addition and will continue to look forward to other opportunities in the future.”

Reprocessing of single-use devices is currently employed by close to 50 percent of U.S. hospitals. As the largest reprocessing company in the United States, Ascent has reprocessing programs in place at more than 1,800 hospitals and hospital systems across the country.

Ascent researches and identifies devices that can be safely reprocessed. As manufacturers change their designs and technologies to make devices and catheters more precise and versatile, Ascent attempts to find ways to safely remanufacture these devices.
