About FlexAbility Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled

Abbott has partnered with physicians worldwide to address the need for an effective, reliable and comfortable irrigated ablation catheter. The FlexAbility™ Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled™ fulfills this need by offering a shaft and handle combination with a strong safety and effectiveness profile.1-4,5 This ablation catheter also integrates with Abbott mapping and navigation systems—including the EnSite Precision™ cardiac mapping system.

The FlexAbility Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled, is designed to:

  • Facilitate detailed, accurate model creation6 and effective lesion creation.2
  • Yield safe, effective outcomes for your patients1-4
  • Provide consistent performance and fatigue-reducing enhancements7,*
  • Reduce the possibility of procedural risk with directed flow and tip temperature monitoring1,3,4,5
  • Provide excellent maneuverability and reduced deflection force.7,*

  • FlexAbility Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled Product Information

Indications

The FlexAbility Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled, is intended for use with the compatible irrigation pump and a compatible RF cardiac ablation generator. The catheter is intended for creating endocardial lesions during cardiac ablation procedures (mapping, stimulation, and ablation) for the treatment of typical atrial flutter.

Contraindications

In patients with active systemic infection. In patients with intracardiac mural thrombus or those who have had a ventriculotomy or atriotomy within the preceding four weeks.
