BJC HealthCare Becomes First Health Care System in Midwest to Adopt Latest Robotic Technology for Arrhythmia Treatment
Tens of millions of individuals worldwide suffer from arrhythmias – abnormal heart rhythms that result when the heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When left untreated, certain arrhythmias can significantly increase the risk of stroke, heart failure, and sudden cardiac arrest. Robotic Magnetic Navigation introduces the benefits of robotic precision and safety to cardiac ablation, a common, minimally invasive procedure to treat arrhythmias.
The Genesis RMN system consists of two robotically controlled magnets, a flexible catheter with a magnetic tip, and an operating console. The system creates magnetic fields which can be finely manipulated to steer catheters with an unprecedented degree of precision and control. Because the catheter is controlled from the tip, it is flexible and gentle. With RMN, physicians can safely and effectively treat patients with complex arrhythmias, reaching areas of the heart that cannot be treated using traditional, manual techniques.
The clinical benefits of robotic cardiac ablation are well-documented with hundreds of publications describing, on average, fewer adverse events, better procedure success, and reduced radiation to patients with robotics when compared with manual cardiac ablation.
Today’s announcement continues the consistent collaboration in advancing clinical science, physician training, patient awareness, and patient access to robotic cardiac ablation procedures. Located less than one mile from Stereotaxis’ headquarters,
