ST. LOUIS, May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis, Inc. (OTCQX:STXS), the global leader in innovative robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, today announced that the Society for Cardiac Robotic Navigation (SCRN) has published a supplement in the European Journal of Pacing, Arrhythmias and Cardiac Electrophysiology of the European Heart Rhythm Association and the European Society of Cardiology (EP Europace). The title of the supplement is “Update on Clinical Applications for Robotic Magnetic Navigation for Cardiac Arrhythmia” and can be accessed at https://academic.oup.com/europace/issue/20/suppl_2. The journal aims to provide an avenue of communication of top quality global original scientific work and reviews in the fields of arrhythmias, pacing and cellular electrophysiology.
“The SCRN was established with the intention of providing a platform for users of cardiac robotic technologies,” said Dr. Tamas Szili-Torok, current president of the SCRN and co-guest editor of the supplement. “The papers included in this supplement were obtained through a competitive application process and were subject to peer review, providing the latest data available on robotic applications in electrophysiology.”
The supplement includes 8 publications on data collected and analyzed by physicians at 15 hospitals and universities throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and China.
Dr. Eugene Crystal, incoming president of the SCRN and co-guest editor, added, “Publishing the latest clinical evidence in a well-respected journal in the focused issue is extraordinarily important for the SCRN mission of educating current and future operators worldwide. This supplement will provide some experimental and key clinical data on a broad range of arrhythmias including those that are difficult or impossible to treat with conventional approaches. In addition to the latest safety and efficacy data on robotic EP procedures, new data is available supporting catheter stability and the contact force exhibited from the magnetic catheter. The editorial board made specific focused efforts to help the authors shape this manuscript to the best technical details of clinical application for remote magnetic navigation.”
The EP Europace supplement will be highlighted at the upcoming Heart Rhythm Society annual meeting in Boston. Key contributors of the supplement will be available at 4:30 PM Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at booth #537, to discuss the data published in the supplement and printed copies will be available.
This supplement was supported by an educational grant from the SCRN and an unrestricted educational grant from Stereotaxis, Inc.
