Stereotaxis to Initiate First-in-Human Trial to Support CE Mark Application of MAGiC Catheter

06/15/23 at 4:10 PM EDT

ST. LOUIS, June 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer and global leader in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today announced that it intends to initiate a first-in-human trial to support the CE Mark submission for its MAGiC™ catheter.

Stereotaxis’ MAGiC catheter is a robotically-navigated magnetic ablation catheter designed to perform minimally invasive cardiac ablation procedures. The catheter’s CE Mark submission was made in July 2022 and included substantial in vivo preclinical, lab and bench data. The submission strategy was in-line with multiple historical precedents for similar ablation catheters as well as verbal feedback provided by the European Notified Body. Given evolving interpretation of recent EU Medical Device Regulation, the Notified Body has now requested clinical data to support the submission. Stereotaxis intends to complete a first-in-human study to support the MAGiC submission before the end of this year.

“We look forward to advancing the MAGiC catheter into clinical use and are working expeditiously to ensure the technology becomes available to patients and the electrophysiology community as soon as possible,” said David Fischel, Stereotaxis Chairman and CEO.

“Stereotaxis continues to experience demand for its Genesis robotic system, and reiterates its expectation of double-digit revenue growth in 2023. Our strong financial position allows us to advance a robust innovation strategy through commercialization without the need for additional financing. This innovation strategy, including a highly-accessible robot with proprietary interventional catheters for use in electrophysiology and broadly across endovascular interventions, serves as the foundational product ecosystem to transform endovascular surgery with robotics.”
