intracardiac echocardiography

intracardiac echocardiography

Cardiology A minimally invasive imaging modality used to guide complex transseptal catheterization; IE is used to guide transseptal puncture for percutaneous transvenous mitral commisurotomy in mitral valve stenosis, as well as giant left atria, atrial septal aneurysms, or severe kyphoscoliosis

9,314,222, protects the current spotlight feature of the company's Vmotion suite of automations, which enables automatic orientation of a magnetically compatible Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE), or ultrasound, catheter to track a localized ablation catheter in conjunction with the Vdrive system with V-Sono(TM) ICE catheter manipulator.
The contract is to supply 1 pc intracardiac echocardiography system for ECHO and 1 Echocardiography with an ergometer.
Principles of Echocardiography and Intracardiac Echocardiography (online access included)
A number of different tools including TOE transthoracic echocardiography intracardiac echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging are available for measurements of atrial septal defect estimation of device size and guidance for device deployment.
Percutaneous ASD closure was planned using fluoroscopy and intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) via femoral vein under local anesthesia.
The usefulness of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) in preventing serious complications in transseptal procedures when the cardiac anatomy is unusual or distorted has also been highlighted recently (9).
In case of failure of this method, other imaging modalities can be used such as venous-phase coronary angiography, multislice computed tomography (CT)-guided imaging, fiberoptic endoscopy, and intracardiac echocardiography (13-16).
Practical intracardiac echocardiography in electrophysiology.
The majority of these patients received standard radiofrequency ablation, but substantial fractions were treated by radiofrequency ablation with an irrigated or cooled tip, or by radiofrequency ablation using guidance by intracardiac echocardiography.
These include the development of ablation catheters with larger tips, routine use of intracardiac echocardiography to facilitate transseptal puncture and identify the ostium of the pulmonary veins, and sophisticated 3-D real time electroanatomical mapping systems, such as Biosense Webster's Carto, which greatly reduce fluoroscopy times.
