Catheter Ablation System for Atrial Fibrillation Shows Reduced Procedure Time, Remarkable Safety Profile and Excellent Outcomes in Two Clinical Studies
Date:9/2/2008

Important Studies Presented at the European Society of Cardiology Continue

to Bring Attention to Innovative Technology

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Ablation Frontiers, Inc., announced today that two important studies, involving its innovative atrial fibrillation ablation products were presented by Dr. Lucas Boersma of the St. Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein, Netherlands at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress. One of the world's most prestigious scientific meetings for cardiologists, the ESC meetings took place from August 30 - September 3 in Munich, Germany.

Dr. Boersma's first study involved 45 patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) is characterized by a rapid rhythm of the heart's upper chambers that starts suddenly and stops without the need for medical intervention, yet can provoke severe symptoms. All patients were treated with ablation therapy at the antrum of the pulmonary veins (PV) designed to electrically isolate them from the left atrial body. This therapy has previously involved long procedure times and often required elaborate and expensive imaging technology. Using the circular decapolar Pulmonary Vein Ablation Catheter (PVAC(TM)) and GENius(TM) Multi-Channel Radiofrequency (RF) energy generator from Ablation Frontiers, 100% of the veins were isolated in 97 minutes (+/- 32 minutes) with just 20 minutes (+/- 9 minutes) of fluoroscopy. No complications were observed and 82% of the patients discontinued anti-arrhythmic drug therapy and were free of atrial fibrillation 9 months (+/- 2 months) following a single ablation procedure.

"PV isolation is a therapy option that is appropriate for many PAF patients, but can be difficult and time-consuming to perform with previous technologies. More importantly, there has traditionally been a small but significant complication rate. The Ablation Frontiers system has overcome those challenges," stated Dr.
