KEEP YOUR LIFE IN RHYTHM

with robotic precision and safety

Ablation Can Be Challenging

In traditional cardiac ablation procedures, a physician manually manipulates a catheter by hand to treat the heart. Controlling a catheter tip by holding on to the opposite end isn’t easy. The challenge could be compared to writing your name while holding a pencil by its eraser.

Robotics Transforms Ablation

Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) technology transforms catheter navigation using two robotically-controlled magnets next to the operating table. The physician controls the procedure from behind an intuitive computer interface to precisely steer the ablation catheter with a magnet embedded in its tip.

The benefits of RMN are well established, and documented in over 400 peer-reviewed scientific publications.

Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)

Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) describes when the muscle fibers in the atrium, the upper chambers of the heart, are all contracting at different times. The end result is a quivering or twitching movement. Symptoms of AFib include general fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath, weakness, and palpitations.

Premature Ventricular Contraction (PVC)

The heart has two lower chambers called the ventricles. Premature ventricular contraction is when the ventricles contract earlier than normal in the cardiac cycle. This happens because an abnormal contraction signal, called a depolarization, originates from somewhere in the ventricles rather than coming from the pacemaker cells.

Ventricular Tachycardia

Ventricular refers to the bottom chambers of the heart, the ventricles. Tachycardia indicates a fast heart rate. Ventricular Tachycardia is a series of abnormal heart beats where the electrical signal that generates the beat starts in the ventricles instead of the atria.

Atrial Flutter

Atrial flutter is used to describe when the atria contract at very high rates, between 300 and 400 beats per minute. Why is it called a flutter? The reason for this is that there is a wave of muscle contraction that flows through the atria that looks a little like it’s flapping or fluttering.

Atrioventricular Reentrant Tachycardia (AVRT) and Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia (AVNRT)

The atria are the hearts upper chambers and the ventricles are the the lower chambers. These two terms are the root of the word Atrioventricular. Reentrant Tachycardias are fast heart rates caused by electrical signals that loop back on themselves.
