First use of remote controlled cardiac catheter:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Stereotaxis' magnetic navigation system has been used for the first time to steer a diagnostic catheter within the heart of a patient with a cardiac arrhythmia. The technology was first used two years ago to remotely guide a biopsy needle in a brain tumour patient (see Clinica No 840, p 17). A further 20 patients are due to take part in a heart mapping trial of the guidance system at two sites in the US, said the St Louis, Missouri company. Stereotaxis is also planning to carry out a trial of a magnetically controlled guidewire to navigate within the blood vessels of the brain.
