Persistent AF Patient Treated with HeartLight™ Endoscopic Ablation System in Live Case at Venice Arrhythmias 2011
Date:10/12/2011

a circumferential lesion pattern, which in our experience has translated to more efficient, durable vein isolation. In this particular case, it even enabled conversion to normal sinus rhythm during the ablation of the right superior pulmonary vein. We are optimistic that the system will continue to achieve promising outcomes in patients with both paroxysmal and persistent AF."

The efficacy and precision of endoscopically guided catheter ablation was further supported by a study evaluating the ability of the system to ablate PVs of varying anatomy in 29 unselected paroxysmal AF patients. The research was performed by Boris Schmidt, MD and KR Julian Chun, MD, of Cardioangiologisches Centrum Bethanien, Frankfurt, Germany and presented by Melanie Gunawardene, MD, also of Cardioangiologisches Centrum Bethanien.  They found that visually guided PV isolation was achieved in 72% of veins (83/116) on the very first attempt and that electrical isolation was ultimately confirmed with a diagnostic spiral catheter in 99% of the PVs attempted (115/116) using only a single HeartLight EAS catheter.  

Since its introduction in 2009, the visually-guided HeartLight EAS has been used to treat approximately 400 patients with AF in the United States and in Europe. It incorporates a compliant, dynamically adjustable balloon catheter designed for improved contact with the PV ostium, and utilizes laser energy for more efficient, durable and precise ablation treatment.
