arrhythmia mapping

Cardiology The use of hardware and software to ID the source of tachyarrhythmias; radiofrequency ablation is then directed to the specific arrhythmogenic site for potentially curative treatment. See Tachycardia.

where he was instrumental in the global commercialization of the EnSite cardiac arrhythmia mapping and navigation technology, as well as the company's acquisition by St.
The Mercator Atrial High Density Array Catheter is used in conjunction with the Cardiac Pathways' Model 8100/8300 Arrhythmia Mapping System to capture and display information about the conduction activity in the right atrium, allowing the physician to determine the source of the arrhythmia as well as the effectiveness of treatment.
We believe the Mercator catheter and the Arrhythmia Mapping System are important diagnostic tools that may potentially lead to minimally invasive treatment for patients with serious heart rhythm disturbances," said William N.
The new robotic catheter system has the potential to fundamentally change the way electrophysiology procedures are performed worldwide and make it possible for a broader group of physicians to perform complex cardiac procedures such as cardiac arrhythmia mapping," said Wyn Davies, M.

Cardiac Pathways has taken an integrated design approach to its Mercator family of high resolution mapping baskets and the Arrhythmia Mapping System, offering efficacious electrophysiology tools for diagnosing arrhythmias, such as atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation," states president and chief executive officer, William Starling.
These decreases were offset in part by increased sales of Radii mapping and ablation catheters in the first quarter of fiscal 1998 and the sale of an Arrhythmia Mapping System.
By the end of 1997, Cardiac Pathways anticipates the international introduction of its Chilli(TM) Cooled RF Ablation System for the treatment of ventricular tachycardia, and its Mercator(TM) Atrial Mapping Baskets for the diagnosis of complex atrial arrythmias, as well as its Arrhythmia Mapping System for cardiac electrophysiology studies.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the Company approval of its 510(k) application to commercially release its Arrhythmia Mapping System for use in the diagnosis of patients with abnormally rapid heart rhythms, or tachyarrthymias.
The decrease in sales was primarily attributable to decreased sales of SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) catheters, partially offset by international sales of four high resolution Arrhythmia Mapping Systems.
