Stereotaxis Announces CE Mark Submission for Robotically Navigated MAGiC Ablation Catheter
Building on over 100,000 procedures and nearly twenty years of experience gained from existing robotically navigated ablation catheters, MAGiC has been developed in collaboration with Osypka, a German medical devices company that pioneered the development of radiofrequency ablation of cardiac arrhythmias. MAGiC incorporates various features that are designed to enhance patient safety and efficacy, procedural efficiency, and the physician experience.
“The electrophysiology community has long awaited innovation in robotic catheter technology, and we are very excited by the near-term availability of the MAGiC catheter,” said Prof.
CE Mark submission of the MAGiC catheter reflects the culmination of an extensive design, development, manufacturing and testing effort. This catheter is the first in a series of interventional devices being developed by

Stereotaxis Robotically Navigated MAGiC Catheter for Cardiac Ablation
Stereotaxis has announced CE Mark submission for its novel, robotically navigated MAGiC ablation catheter for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Design features include a round, solid gold tip with 25 irrigation ports and string-of-pearls distribution of magnetic material along the catheter’s flexible shaft.
Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation System
Procedure room equipped with Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) system for minimally invasive endovascular intervention. Robotic cardiac ablation is performed using a soft magnetic catheter navigated inside the heart by a physician seated at a computer cockpit. The physician navigates the catheter using precise, robotically actuated magnets positioned on either side of the patient.
