CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Ablation Frontiers, Inc., a privately-held medical device company, announced today its successful first public broadcast of a procedure using the company's novel Catheter Ablation System on October 31. Performed by Dr. Lucas Boersma of the St. Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands, the System was used to isolate heart tissue causing a potentially dangerous irregular heart rhythm.

He has suffered from episodic heart palpitations and dyspnea -- all common symptoms of this arrhythmia. "I would often be out of breath and sometimes feel my heart beating much faster than normal," said the patient.

The minimally-invasive procedure was performed in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. Dr. Boersma began by inserting the Pulmonary Vein Ablation Catheter (PVAC(TM)) into the patient's right leg and maneuvering up to the heart by way of a large vein.

Simultaneously applying radiofrequency (RF) energy to all of the electrodes with the Ablation F
