U.S. Hospital Surpasses 1,000 Procedures using Stereotaxis Niobe® System
“Utilizing the Niobe ES system, we can navigate a catheter safely and accurately within any of the four chambers of the heart, with nearly no danger of perforation and more consistent contact between the catheter and heart wall, resulting in more effective ablations,” said Dr. Dell’Orfano.
“The benefits of
Saint Francis first installed the Niobe system in 2007 and then in early 2012 upgraded to the Niobe ES, the latest generation magnetic navigation platform. The hospital helped pioneer the practice of remote magnetic navigation for electrophysiology procedures in
Electrophysiology (EP) is often used to help correct heart arrhythmias through catheter ablation, which is a treatment that cauterizes (burns) cardiac tissue to eliminate rhythm abnormalities in patients. During an EP procedure, the electrophysiologist (a cardiologist with specialized training in the electrical system of the heart) threads special electrode catheters (long, thin, flexible wire assemblies) to the heart, normally gaining access to the vasculature through the groin area. Once the area of the heart responsible for the arrhythmia is identified, a special wire carrying radiofrequency energy is used to ablate the site.
