Steady Utilization Growth Seen in Atrial Fibrillation, EP Mapping and
Ablation, PCI and Additional Complex Procedures
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stereotaxis, Inc. (Nasdaq: STXS) announced today that more than 10,000 procedures have been performed using the Stereotaxis system. The Stereotaxis system utilizes advanced, magnet-guided navigational technology intended to help electrophysiologists and cardiologists treat complex arrhythmias and perform other interventional procedures, with enhanced safety and precision.
To date, clinicians at more than 60 hospitals worldwide have used the Stereotaxis system to perform over 2,000 percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) and other guidewire-based vascular procedures; approximately 6,000 right-sided electrophysiology mapping and ablation procedures; and nearly 2,000 atrial fibrillation and other complex left-sided procedures, including 400 for ventricular tachycardia.
"As one of the largest electrophysiology practices in the country, we regard our Stereotaxis Niobe(R) system as an important component of our daily treatment of a broad spectrum of arrhythmias," said Dr. Raul Weiss of Ohio State University Hospital. "We are particularly impressed with the superior performance and safety of the system in challenging cases, and we believe that Stereotaxis will revolutionize the treatment of complex arrhythmias, setting a new paradigm for patient care."
"The strong growth in our technology's clinical utilization is
occurring across a broad range of electrophysiology, interventional
cardiology, and other vascular procedures, and we are pleased to note that
nearly 500 procedures have been completed with our new partnered eigh
