Guidance for structural heart interventions
Step 1: Preprocedural planning
In this case the 3mensio Structural Heart planning software for left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAC) was used to perform the preprocedural assement based on CT.
Features and Benefits
- Fuses CT or MRI based anatomical information through co-registration with only 2 fluoro images
- Adds pre-procedural planning objects, e.g. 3mensio planning and graphical annotations for guidance
- Allows to adjust the C-arm projection according to 3D with the push of a button
“Fusion of CT-defined landmarks to live fluoroscopy in LAAC supports safe and efficient navigation in transseptal puncture and LAA device occluder positioning.”
LAAC guided through ICE and fusion imaging
The Rigshospitalet Heart Center Copenhagen is integrating CT Fusion in addition to guidance through 2D ICE in their LAAC routine. Beside this extract of their live-in-a-box video you can see the full video here.
