Magnetecs announced that an abstract presentation of the research assisted by the Catheter Guidance Control Imaging (CGCI) system performed by Dr.Jose Luis Merino Llorens at the Universitario La Paz in Madrid, Spain will be presented at the EHRA Europace Congress on the 27th of June 2011.
The presentation is titled, “Fast Reacting Electromagnets for Remote Navigation of the Mapping Catheter: First Results in Humans,” and would take place at the IFEMA Convention Center.
The initial clinical trials of the CGCI system were conducted on patients with arrhythmia at the La Paz Hospital. In the clinical trial, the EnSiteNavX Navigation and Visualization technology was used along with the CGCI system to create a detailed map of the heart. The study measured the intracardiac anatomic site target acquisition and recurrence of the acquisition. During the presentation at the EHRA Congress, Dr. Marino will perform cardiac mapping using the robotic CGCI system, which will be telecasted concurrently to around 5000 cardiologists and other attendees in Madrid and other select locations in Netherlands as well.
Dr.Eli Gang, the Chief Medical Officer at Magnetecs, revealed plans of conducting trials of protocols of the CGCI System at the Mount Sinai Medical Center and many other locations in Asia, Canada, U.S, U.K, Italy and South Korea. In Europe, they have signed an agreement with the Na Homolce Hospital. He added that they are looking forward to increasing the deployment of the system across the world to help arrhythmia patients.
