Intracardiac Echocardiography in EP

Intracardiac Echocardiography in EP

With increasing complexity of EP procedures, Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE) is becoming more and more important in order to identify relevant anatomic structures, facilitate transseptal access, guide acurate placement of RF and/or cryoablation catheters and to allow for titration of delivered energy, recognition of thrombus formation on sheaths and catheters, as well as early recognition of cardiac perforation and/or the development of a pericardial effusion. Thus, ICE has the potential to shorten procedure times, reduce radiation exposure and increase the safety of cardiac ablation procedures. For more information on clinical application of ICE in cardiac catheter ablation and device therapy, please see related literature below.

AcuNavTM V is a world's first real-time volume ICE catheter offering extensive opportunities for real-time 3D visualization during complex EP procedures.
