Stereotaxis Overview

The Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System is well suited for the diagnosis and treatment of common and complex arrhythmias, as successful treatment requires precise catheter positioning, often in hard to reach regions of the heart, which can be more consistently achieved using computerized, magnetic navigation.

Traditional techniques are challenging for physicians because they require very precise manual orientation of a relatively stiff catheter within potentially complex heart chamber anatomy.

TStereotaxis Magnetic Navigation Systemhe goal of Stereotaxis' technology is to contact the wall of the heart in an optimal way. Softer, more flexible catheters may reduce the chance of distorting or damaging the heart wall. By combining the benefits of precise, computer-aided magnetic guidance with gentle catheter contact, magnetic navigation believes it has the potential to enable softer, safer interventional procedures with better outcomes and shorter patient recovery times.

Precise steering, greater safety, and reduced radiation exposure make magnetic navigation ideal for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, atrial tachycardia, and atrial flutter.
