|Lund University Hospital Study Validates Improved Long-Term Clinical Outcomes Using Stereotaxis Technology|
Lead author Dr.
In the study, 112 consecutive AF patients were ablated utilizing the Niobe system versus 102 patients with manual navigation. The Niobe patient group experienced significantly shorter fluoroscopy time (11.1±6.3 vs. 16.9±10.8 min, P <0.05) and fewer major complications (1 significant PV stenosis vs. 3 tamponades) than the manual patient group. Furthermore, after 33±8/42±9 months of follow-up, significantly better clinical efficacy (P <0.05) was found in the Niobe group (AF free or markedly improved: 64% after 1st and 81% after 2nd ablation, respectively) than in the manual group (52% after 1st and 67% after 2nd ablation, respectively).
“On a personal note, the convenience and ease of use associated with the Niobe system alleviates much of the physical burden related to these complex procedures, enabling me to continue practicing electrophysiology longer than expected,” said Dr. Yuan, who performed his first procedure using the Niobe system in late 2011 and has since completed more than 300 cases. Collectively, physicians at
