Innovations in catheter ablation technology have made it possible for more patients to experience relief from disruptive atrial fibrillation symptoms. Discover how ablation has evolved into the safe, effective procedure it is today.
Collaboration between cardiology and electrophysiology can be critical to patient care. Together, both specialties are working towards the goal of a symptom-free atrial fibrilliation patient. Discover first hand how strengthening the alliance between cardiologist and electrophysiologist enhances patient care.

THERMOCOOL® Navigation Catheters are approved for recurrent drug/device refractory sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) due to prior myocardial infarction (MI) in adults (excluding THERMOCOOL® SF Catheters).
The NAVISTAR® THERMOCOOL® and EZ STEER® THERMOCOOL® NAV Catheters are FDA approved for the treatment of drug refractory recurrent symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, when used with compatible three-dimensional electroanatomic mapping systems.
In the US, Biosense Webster THERMOCOOL® non-navigational Catheters are indicated for the treatment of Type I Atrial Flutter in patients 18 years of age or older.
The clinical significance of utilizing the CARTO® CFAE Module to help identify areas with complex fractionated atrial electrograms for catheter ablation of atrial arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, has not been established by clinical investigations.
Always verify catheter tip location using fluoroscopy or IC signals and consult the CARTO® System User Guide regarding recommendations for fluoroscopy use.

The clinical significance of utilizing the PASO™ Module to help pace mapping for catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias has not been demonstrated by clinical investigations.
The CARTO VISITAG™ Module provides access to data collected during the application of RF energy. The data does not indicate the effectiveness of RF energy application. CARTO VISITAG™ Module settings are user defined based on the user’s clinical experience and medical judgment. Biosense Webster, Inc. does not recommend any settings for the CARTO VISITAG™ Module.
In the US, 4mm Catheters (NAVISTAR®, CELSIUS®, EZ STEER® (NAV and Non-Nav)) have a “General Indication” for creation of endocardial lesions in patients 4 years of age and older. This “General Indication” includes treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia.
