Executive Summary

nContact Surgical Inc. aims to merge the best of surgical and interventional techniques to provide a truly minimally invasive, single procedure solution for atrial fibrillation patients. Its Numeris Coagulation system with VisiTrax is used in the surgical portion of the procedure, in which VisiTrax integrates suction, perfusion and radiofrequency energy to create long linear lesions on the outside of a beating heart. The electrophysiologist then uses a catheter to complete the biatrial lesion pattern inside the heart.
