QUOTED. March 19, 2019. Tamas Szili-Torok.
In this week's Starts & Stops compilation of clinical trial announcements, Stereotaxis and Acutus Medical announced the companies have successfully treated the first heart patient with an integrated robotic magnetic navigation and non-contact mapping system. See what Tamas Szili-Torok of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Holland, said about it here.
"When you combine an advanced mapping technology that shows you the potential locations to treat the patient with a robotic technology that gets you there more rapidly, precisely and safely, you improve patient care and the physician experience simultaneously. Physicians are safer, patients are safer, procedure time may be shortened with a potential for a reduced likelihood of additional procedures. Integration of the technologies worked smoothly and provided an enhanced workflow. The procedures went very well, with successful treatment of patients with atrial arrhythmias in a safe and efficient fashion." –Tamas Szili-Torok, researcher, Erasmus Medical Center
