SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

We offer a full range of electrophysiology solutions that give physicians the versatility to diagnose and manage an array of cardiac conditions and cardiac arrhythmias.

Arrhythmia management is multifaceted, requiring creative solutions that span the patient care continuum – from diagnostics to therapy. We are leading the way with inventive designs that give you the options you need to diagnose, treat and manage arrhythmias with versatility and effectiveness. When it comes to understanding and managing cardiac arrhythmias, we are your partner for life.

LATEST TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
ACCESS PRODUCTS WITH SIZES AND FEATURES FOR COMPLICATED VASCULATURE

We provide access solutions that make it easier to navigate varied anatomies and reach certain areas of the heart—focusing on maneuverability and stability that may improve procedural efficiency. Many of our short and guiding introducers, as well as transseptal access products can be used in advanced ablation procedures, such as left-sided or ventricular procedures.

Watch an in-depth description and demonstration of the Agilis™ NxT steerable introducer to learn more about our access products.

DIAGNOSTIC PRODUCTS DESIGNED FOR PERFORMANCE

We develop our diagnostic catheters with precision and maneuverability in mind, from simple to the most complex arrhythmia diagnoses.

Our featured diagnostic product, Advisor™ HD Grid Mapping Catheter, Sensor Enabled™, offers a first-of-its kind electrode configuration for high density mapping. High density grid mapping takes cardiac mapping in a whole new direction. Experience the coverage, density and consistency of a unique grid-patterned design.1

ADVANCED ABLATION SOLUTIONS SPANNING THE PATIENT CARE CONTINUUM

We offer two breakthrough catheters, the TactiCath™ Quartz ablation catheter and the FlexAbility™ ablation catheter, Sensor Enabled™, each designed to treat cardiac arrhythmias:

  • The TactiCath Quartz ablation catheter is the pioneer of contact force technology providing accurate and reliable contact force (CF) readings for optimal pulmonary vein isolation (PVI).11,12 It has 6x greater accuracy in contact force sensing and is accurate in all orientations tested.13, 14** The catheter is indicated for use in cardiac electrophysiological mapping and for the treatment of drug refractory recurrent symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, when used in conjunction with a compatible RF generator and three-dimensional mapping system.
  • The FlexAbility ablation catheter, Sensor Enabled, has a unique flexible tip design for directed flow9 and an advanced shaft-handle combination for optimal maneuverability and handling. The catheter is intended for creating endocardial lesions during cardiac ablation procedures (mapping, stimulation and ablation) for the treatment of typical atrial flutter.

Our ablation catheters, when combined with the Agilis NxT steerable introducer, EnSite Precision cardiac mapping system and Ampere™ RF ablation generator, offer solutions to diagnose, treat and manage atrial arrhythmias with versatility and ease.

SYSTEMS: AUTOMATED. FLEXIBLE. PRECISE.10,15*

Our cardiac mapping system is the centerpiece of Abbott system technology. The EnSite Precision™ cardiac mapping system is designed to provide critical mapping information for diagnosing a wide range of arrhythmias and to integrate with current and future technologies.

In this video, watch Dr. Gerhard Hindricks and Dr. Philipp Sommer of the University of Leipzig Heart Center discuss the EnSite Precision cardiac mapping system.
