Japanese regulators have given St Jude Medical regulatory and reimbursement approvals for its computer-based visualisation and navigation tool for use in treating irregular heartbeats. The EnSite system allows electrophysiologists to create three-dimensional models of their patients' cardiac anatomy and identify the location and movement of abnormal electrical impulses, enabling a treatment strategy to be determined. The St Paul, Minnesota firm's device is being distributed in Japan by Nihon Kohden.
