Technology That Boldly Redefines
the EP Lab

Bold Solutions to Challenge AFib

Bold Solutions to Challenge AFib

Reinventing the Technology You Rely On Everyday

A solutions-based approach to innovation, Abbott’s EP portfolio is designed to improve your procedure experience. Our approach to technology helps physicians deliver better outcomes faster by focusing on three key factors:


Get In and Out of Your Lab in Less Time

Bold technology lets you treat more patients in less time. With Advisor™ HD Grid Mapping Catheter, Sensor Enabled™, procedure times are reduced by an average of 34 minutes versus CMCs1

Know You are Doing it Right the First Time

Efficiency is not just about reduction in procedure times. Bold technology should also promise less repeat procedures and reduced all-cause events. Advisor™ HD Grid Mapping Catheter has shown a 14% reduction in redo procedures compared to CMCs2 and TactiCath™ Ablation Catheter, SE results in decreased healthcare utilization by reducing all-cause annual event rates by more than 53%3


Reduced Afib Fluoro Time
Reduced Radiation Exposure in the Lab


Boldness in treating AFib requires technology that never sacrifices accuracy or efficiency. Abbott’s EP portfolio delivers both.

Cleaner Maps with Automatic Removal of Outliers

EnSite™ X Software Verson 2 provides a more accurate mapping experience by automatically removing outliers.



Accurate contact force matters during your ablation procedures. TactiCath™ Contact Force Catheter, Sensor Enabled™ has shown 6x greater accuracy in lateral orientation for contact force ablation than the competition.6,7

Driving clinical success in Paroxysmal and Persistent AFib

  • Achieving an 82.2% clinical success rate for paroxysmal AFib at one year10
  • And a 90% symptomatic success rate at 15 months - using the TactiCath Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled10

With the Amplatzer™ Amulet™ Left Atrial Appendage Occluder (LAAO) you do both – not only delivering a 67% lower stroke rate, but also allowing 8 out of 10 patients to be discharged without OACs.12 Amplatzer Amulet LAAO is the only FDA-approved LAAO that does not require use of OACs at discharge.
