Cardiac Pathways CE-marks diagnostic catheters:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Cardiac Pathways has CE-marked its Trio/Ensemble diagnostic catheters for sale in south Europe. The devices are used for the diagnostic mapping of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), a rapid heart rhythm that originates above the ventricles in the heart. Doctors using the Trio/Ensemble system can place three catheters inside a patient through a single incision, instead of three separate ones, and assess the electrical conduction between the atria and ventricle. The SVT is then treated using radiofrequency catheter ablation.
