Agilis NxT

STEERABLE INTRODUCER

Choose the Gold Standard

As evidenced in more than one million procedures*, for a growing number of physicians, Agilis™ NxT Steerable Introducer is the introducer of choice when guiding ablation catheters to treat arrhythmias. Tailor to your patient’s anatomy with a large variety of sizes & curves that maintain their shape.

Curve sizes for the Agilis NxT Steerable Introducer

 

Confident steering and stable positioning with exceptional maneuverability

Enhanced catheter stability enables control of tip movements within millimeters along the intended ablation line1

Access hard-to-reach areas with precise maneuverability and auto-lock steering, such as the right inferior and left anterior pulmonary veins1

 

Enhanced procedural efficiency with exceptional contact force

60%

 

 

Greater catheter-tissue contact force, which may support more durable lesion formation2

 

 

Higher left atrial wall contact, and more efficient energy delivery, especially critical for thicker left atrial musculature1

Experience Greater Agility and Stability

The Agilis NxT steerable introducer combines a low profile with high-tech capabilities, giving you greater control during electrophysiology (EP) procedures.3

Indicated for introducing various cardiovascular catheters into the heart, the steerable sheath improves access to hard-to-reach sites (including the left side of the heart through the interatrial septum), eliminating the need to change out sheaths in order to reach the desired position.4

 

Key Features
 

  • Multiple curve choices, including small (16.8 mm), medium (22.4 mm) and large (50.0 mm) curl options
  • Low-profile outer diameter and a large 8.5 F inner lumen, to facilitate passage of a wide variety of catheters
  • Dual-Reach™ bi-directional 180˚/90˚ deflection to allow asymmetric deflection for more mobility with less shaft torque
  • Auto-lock capability to reduce curve movements during complex procedures5
  • Braided shaft provides exceptional torquability, pushability and kink resistance
  • Radiopaque tip marker enhances fluoro visibility
  • Ultimum™ hemostasis valve provides effective hemostasis, and seals down to a 0.014 inch guidewire
  • Accommodates a 98 cm BRK™ transseptal needle and BRK-1™ transseptal needle
  • Ergonomic handle provides user comfort
  • Improved kink resistance for difficult or long procedures (G4083xx models)

 

Greater freedom from arrhythmia at 6 months (76.0% vs 53.0%)3 and 18% greater at 12 months (74.0% vs 62.7%)4

 

Complete PVI isolation (left- and right-sided veins) (43 pts vs 8 pts)1

 

Fewer re-do ablations (6 pts vs 23 pts)1 and 17% fewer acute PV reconnections (50% vs 60%)5
