The Mercator catheter is intended to be used in the right atrium for diagnosing and mapping complex arrhythmias that may be difficult to identify using conventional mapping systems alone.
The Mercator catheter is a high density, 64-electrode basket with eight arms designed for rapidly assessing arrhythmias within the right atrium and determining the effectiveness of ablation procedures used to treat the arrhythmia.
The Mercator Catheter is intended to be used for diagnosing and mapping atrial arrhythmias, including atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation, common heart rhythm disturbances that sometimes cause blood clots that can lead to strokes.
Mercator catheters are also used by several pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to aid in the development of therapeutics that benefit from the direct targeting and efficiency of site-specific delivery.
