MARLBOROUGH, Mass., May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CardioFocus, Inc., developer of the HeartLight® Endoscopic Ablation System (EAS) for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), announces that its technology will be highlighted both as part of the scientific sessions and during a private academic symposium at Heart Rhythm 2012, the Heart Rhythm Society's 33rd Annual Scientific Sessions, May 9-12 in Boston, MA. The presentations will feature clinical experiences and outcomes using the company's technology, the first visually-guided laser balloon ablation system.

"We are pleased that over two years of comprehensive clinical experiences with our technology will be featured at this prominent industry conference. Many of the leading international experts in heart rhythm management will be participating in these sessions and presenting their own findings with the HeartLight EAS, and we anticipate engaging discussion on the applicability of the system in clinical practice," said Stephen Sagon, President and CEO of CardioFocus.

During the scientific sessions, the presentation "Worldwide Experience Using the Endoscopic Ablation System for Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation" will give an overview of the feasibility and safety of AF ablation using the HeartLight EAS, with findings representing the first patients treated with the technology by 32 different operators across 19 medical centers. The presentation will be made by Boris Schmidt, MD, of Cardioangiologisches Centrum Bethanien, Frankfurt, Germany on Friday, May 11 at 3:25 p.m. ET.

The HeartLight EAS Symposium, to be held the evening of Thursday, May 10 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, will feature presentations from cardiology thought leaders on the evolution of pulmonary vein (PV) isolation ablation, the adoption of the new visually-guided laser balloon ablation technique, and the clinical experiences with the technology at centers throughout Europe. It will be chaired by Prof. Petr Neuzil, MD, of Na Homolce Hospital, Prague, Czech Republic and Prof. Thorsten Lewalter, MD, of Isar Heart Center, Munich, Germany.

The HeartLight EAS is a unique catheter ablation technology that incorporates an endoscope for direct visualization of the inside of the heart and a compliant, dynamically adjustable balloon catheter designed for improved contact with the PV ostium irrespective of the individual patient anatomy. It also utilizes laser energy for more efficient, durable and precise ablation treatment. 

The system is available in Europe for the treatment of AF, and is currently the focus of a pivotal trial in the U.S. For more information, please visit the CardioFocus booth #1103 or
