Biosense Webster has launched its Thermocool SF irrigated-tip ablation catheter in the EU. Ablation catheters are used to treat cardiac arrhythmias, by destroying the cardiac tissue that is causing the abnormal electrical activity. The irrigated tip is designed to cool the device, thereby minimising damage to surrounding tissue. The new catheter is the latest in Biosense Webster's Thermocool line, and features a porous tip that provides uniform cooling across the entire catheter tip. This results in more efficient cooling and therefore more accurate lesion induction than similar products that only offer localised cooling, the Diamond Bar, California firm claims.
