Cardima's Pathfinder catheters approved in Japan

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) has approved Cardima's Pathfinder diagnostic mapping catheters. The devices are designed to access and map the vasculature of the heart to locate the source of arrhythmias, facilitating their treatment. The catheters will be imported into Japan by medical device distributor Robert Reid, which has an exclusive distribution agreement with Cardima. They will be marketed there by Japan Lifeline, a sub-distributor of Robert Reid. Pathfinder catheters have been approved in the US since 1997, and are also available in Europe, Canada and Thailand.
