First in the World Live Case Using New Technology Demonstrates Shorter Procedure Time
Date:11/5/2007

rontiers GENius(TM) generator, Dr Boersma created a number of circular "lesions" that blocked the short circuit -- a procedure known as Pulmonary Vein Isolation or PVI. The patient left the Catheterization Laboratory with a normal heart rhythm.

During the procedure, Dr. Boersma isolated all four pulmonary veins in approximately 38 minutes, or 50 minutes from the first venous access. Afterwards he commented, "With this game changing technology I can create a contiguous, circular lesion without having to drag the catheter along the surface of the heart. This greatly simplifies a once complex procedure. The novel design also allows me to perform the procedure with a single catheter for mapping and ablation. After having treated many patients with this technology I have documented substantially reduced procedure times as well as reduced complications from what I would normally expect to see." On Tuesday, the day before the procedure, Dr Boersma presented his results with the PVAC as part of a presentation entitled, "New developments and insights into Atrial Fibrillation ablation therapy." In his initial experience, Dr. Boersma reported 100% acute success -- confirmed pulmonary vein isolation -- with an average total procedure time of 96 minutes.

Professor Morgan noted, "We have successfully used this catheter in a large number of patients at Southampton General Hospital and experienced reduced procedure times without any major complications. We are very happy with the design of both the catheter technology and the RF generator."

Ablation Frontiers has been distributing the PVAC and GENius(TM) RF Generator to a select number of European centers since receiving the CE Mark in December 2006. As part of the company's "toolbox" approach for ablation of all types of arrhythmias, Ablation Frontiers also distributes the Multi-Array Ablation Catheter(TM) (MAAC), Multi-Array Septal Catheter(TM) (MASC), and Tip-Versatile Ablation Catheter(TM) (T-VAC).
