About AtriCure, Inc.
AtriCure, Inc. is a medical device company and a leader in developing, manufacturing and selling innovative cardiac surgical ablation systems designed to create precise lesions, or scars, in cardiac, or heart, tissue. Medical journals have described the adoption by leading cardiothoracic surgeons of the AtriCure Isolator(R) bipolar ablation system as a treatment alternative during open-heart surgical procedures to create lesions in cardiac tissue to block the abnormal electrical impulses that cause atrial fibrillation, or AF, a rapid, irregular quivering of the upper chambers of the heart. Additionally, medical journals and leading cardiothoracic surgeons have described the AtriCure Isolator(R) system as a promising treatment alternative for patients who may be candidates for sole-therapy minimally invasive procedures. AF affects more than 5.5 million people worldwide and predisposes them to a five-fold increased risk of stroke.
The FDA has cleared the AtriCure Isolator(R) system, including its
Isolator Synergy(TM) ablation clamps, and AtriCure's multifunctional pen
and Coolrail(TM) linear ablation device, for the ablation, or destruction,
of cardiac tissue during surgical procedures. Additionally, the FDA has
cleared AtriCure's multifunctional pen for temporary pacing, sensing,
stimulating and recording during the evaluation of cardiac arrhythmias. To
date, the FDA has not cleared or approved AtriCure's products for the
treatment of AF. AtriCure's left atrial appendage clip system has not been
approved for commercial use.
