Access and Introducers

Abbott offers access devices that help electrophysiologists and cardiac interventionalists reliably access areas of the heart during ablation and mapping procedures. We design our devices to deliver high maneuverability and enhanced physician control1,2 even during complex electrophysiology (EP) procedures

Agilis NxT Steerable Introducer

The Agilis™ NxT steerable introducer is designed to replace a fixed curve introducer. It helps you reach hard-to-access areas of the heart by providing a stable platform for improved catheter manipulation and contact. Used in more than 1,000,000 procedures, the Agilis NxT steerable introducer provides outstanding agility and stability during catheter access and positioning.2
