ST. LOUIS, Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis, Inc. (OTCQX:STXS), a global leader in innovative robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, today announced that its magnetic and robotic navigation systems will be represented at the inaugural meeting of the Society for Cardiac Robotic Navigation (SCRN) in Amsterdam, October 20 and 21. The meeting will bring together distinguished physicians experienced in the application of robotically navigated cardiac ablation to discuss, debate and educate on both the current role and future possibilities of robotics in clinical electrophysiology (EP).
Founded in 2015, the Society for Cardiac Robotic Navigation aims to establish a platform for users of remote technologies in cardiology to share best practices, clinical evidence and information on the latest innovations, while building a network of experts intent on driving the adoption of robotics in interventional medicine. Members have published numerous papers comparing remote magnetic navigation to conventional manual ablation in a wide range of EP procedures. The SCRN is led by Founder and President Dr. Tamas Szili-Torök of Erasmus Medical Center (Netherlands), and Co-founders Dr. Bruno Schwagten of ZNA Middelheim (Belgium) and Dr. Georg Nӧlker of Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany).
“These leaders have experienced first-hand the power of robotic technologies to produce high levels of efficiency, efficacy and safety in ablation therapy and have recognized their underrepresentation in daily clinical practice,” said William C. Mills, Stereotaxis Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “We are pleased that our products will be featured at the first official meeting of the SCRN and excited about its potential to effect greater awareness and acceptance of remote, automated solutions as the standard of care in cardiac ablation.”
