The EnSite Precision cardiac mapping system from, developed by St. Jude Medical, now a division of Abbott, has been launched in the U.S., along with the matching Advisor FL Circular Mapping Catheter. The system, which is used to map cardiac arrhythmias in order to find targets for ablation, is already in use in a number of hospitals around the country where clinical studies were conducted, and it is now available to other clinics looking to upgrade their electrophysiology capabilities.
The screen displays 3D images of the heart and its cardiac activity, helping to find the tissue that is producing errant electric signals that make the heart beat irregularly. Clinicians can use any electrophysiology catheter of their choice, allowing for flexibility depending on the patient.
More details from Abbott:
The EnSite Precision cardiac mapping system introduces new solutions, including the EnSite™ AutoMap Module, which enables the electrophysiologist to more quickly perform morphology matching that identifies the source of the irregular heartbeat. The EnSite AutoMap Module includes the new TurboMap feature, which allows the physician to build a map of the heart 10 times faster than current systems using recorded data.
