Advance open irrigation to a new level with the THERMOCOOL® SF Catheter. Innovative catheter design allows for uniform cooling across the entire catheter tip at half the flow rate*. The advanced porous tip design enables maximum cooling efficiency regardless of catheter orientation, helping to further reduce the risk of thrombus formation. Irrigated catheters help to further reduce the risk of thrombus formation1,2.
