Advanced Solutions for Catheter Ablation
At St. Jude Medical, we design our advanced ablation solutions to provide you with the opportunity to positively impact patient care.
In our portfolio, we offer two breakthrough catheters, the TactiCath™ Quartz ablation catheter and the FlexAbility™ ablation catheter, each designed to treat specific cardiac arrhythmias.
- The TactiCath™ Quartz ablation catheter is the pioneer of contact force technology providing accurate and reliable contact force (CF) readings for optimal pulmonary vein isolation (PVI).5 It is indicated for use in cardiac electrophysiological mapping and for the treatment of drug refractory recurrent symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, when used in conjunction with a compatible RF generator and three-dimensional mapping system.
- The FlexAbility™ ablation catheter has a unique flexible tip design for directed flow3 and an advanced shaft-handle combination for optimal maneuverability and handling. The catheter is intended for creating endocardial lesions during cardiac ablation procedures (mapping, stimulation, and ablation) for the treatment of typical atrial flutter.
Our ablation catheters, when combined with the Agilis™ NxT steerable introducer, EnSite Precision™ cardiac mapping system and Ampere™ RF ablation generator, offer a comprehensive solution for the diagnosis and treatment of atrial arrhythmias.
