The company announced the US launch of the AcQCross Qx transseptal dilator/needle. It is specifically designed to help deploy Boston Scientific’s Watchman left-atrial appendage closure device, but it is part of the left-heart access device portfolio that Acutus recently sold to Medtronic.
The deal, potentially worth more than $85m, will allow Acutus to get more revenue from its core AcQMap electrophysiology mapping technology and invest in the development of its pulsed field ablation system.
The company is supporting two US trials of the AcQBlate Force ablation catheter to support FDA approval of the system to treat atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation.
