Stereotaxis Launches the e-Contact™ Module in Europe
“The e-Contact module is another important building block as we methodically advance towards reliable, reproducible and rapid automation,” said
The ability to transmit RF energy from the catheter tip into tissue is critical to create effective lesions to treat arrhythmias during electrophysiology (EP) procedures. Other systems currently on the market rely on measuring force as a proxy for this electrical process. The e-Contact module is primarily impedance-based which allows for a direct measurement of the capacity to deliver RF energy into tissue. The e-Contact module can improve patient outcomes and reduce procedure times by allowing physicians to focus on ablating only when they can effectively create a lesion.
“The e-Contact module is a great addition to the Niobe® magnetic navigation system. Given the stable focal contact that Niobe provides, a simple indication of contact is perfect,” said
To date, the e-Contact module has been installed in nine European sites with more than 450 procedures completed utilizing the technology.
This technology as well as other Company updates will be highlighted at EHRA EUROPACE-CARDIOSTIM 2017, which will be held
