Two pivotal US trials of pulsed field ablation systems began in early March. Farapulse is sponsoring the ADVENT randomized trial of the Farapulse PFA system and Medtronic launched the international PULSED AF trial of its PulseSelect PFA system.
The IPO is expected to raise $166m to support R&D of new arrhythmia mapping and ablation technologies and expand commercial operations.
New trial results show Acutus Medical's AcQMap platform has the ability to classify conduction patterns and localized non-pulmonary-vein therapeutic targets for ablation to treat atrial fibrillation, which could have implications for both treatment of atrial fibrillation and understanding the genetic markers for this common arrhythmia, according to the authors.
