Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System Used to Successfully Treat an Inoperable Congenital Heart Defect in a 10-Year Old Patient
Date:7/16/2008

ST. LOUIS, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stereotaxis, Inc. (Nasdaq: STXS) announced today that the pediatric cardiology team at the Heart and Diabetes Center of North Reinland-Westphalia in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, successfully performed a first-of-its-kind-procedure to treat pulmonary atresia in a 10-year old boy. The team performed the procedure with Stereotaxis' Niobe Magnetic Navigation System.

Pulmonary atresia is a congenital malformation of the pulmonary valve which obstructs the flow of blood from the heart to the lungs. As a result, blood is forced to flow to the lungs through a hole in the inner wall of the heart, known as a ventricular septal defect, and around a circuitous route through small, winding vessels. The disease severely limits the efficient transport of oxygen throughout the body.

This patient had failed a previous surgical attempt to correct the atresia because there were no vessels of adequate size or quality to utilize. After two conventional catheterization attempts, the Bad Oeynhausen team, lead by Dr. Nikolaus Haas, Director of the Catheterization Laboratory in the Department of Congenital Heart Defects at the Heart and Diabetes Center, used Stereotaxis' software to create a 3D model of the tortuous vessels that had replaced this patient's absent pulmonary artery. The Niobe Magnetic Navigation System then made it possible for the team to navigate a magnetic guidewire through the entire length of the difficult vessel and place a specialized stent that now permits increased blood flow from the aorta to the left lung, increasing the amount of oxygen that can be pumped around the body.

Fewer than 2 days after the procedure, the young patient was discharged from the hospital. Before the procedure, the patient was cyanotic, appearing blue due to insufficient oxygen supply, and could not walk 100 meters without running out of breath. Today, his color is good, and he is able to walk more than 1000 meters before ne
