About TactiCath

Ablate Efficiently with Predictability and Confidence

The first and only contact force catheter with a flexible tip.

Designed for optimal safety and stability, confident lesion creation and procedural efficiency,4 the TactiFlex™ Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled™ elevates ablation procedures through:

  • A proprietary tip design and full integration with the revolutionary EnSite™ X EP System
  • Enhanced tip stability2 during ablation and excellent signal quality and directed irrigation flow to the tissue-tip interface for safe lesion formation
  • Support predictability with intuitive contact force arrow and deflection direction indicator available with the EnSite X EP System

TactiFlex

Perform High-Power Ablation* with Safety and Stability, Confidence and Efficiency

Designed for Optimal Safety and Stability

  • Apply directed irrigation flow1 to the tip-tissue interface, effectively cooling tissue for safe transmural ablation
  • Lower irrigation rate** while ablating up to 50W to reduce fluid loading for added safety4
  • Experience superior stability with a unique, flexible, laser-cut tip - up to 2X greater stability than conventional 56-hole catheters2


Confident Lesion Creation

  • Ablate with the proven performance of the Abbott contact force platform3
  • Optimize contact force measurement through fiber-optic technology
  • High resolution (1g) real-time (50Hz) force display with thermal compensation and no interference from other catheters


Procedural Efficiency4 from intuitive handling and usability with full EnSite X EP System integration

  • Reduce PVI ablation times by as much as 70%*** with high-power short-duration ablation5
  • Usability and predictability with intuitive contact force arrow and deflection direction indicator6
  • Monitor lesion creation with excellent electrogram signal quality even during RF7
