SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- CathEffects(TM), LLC today
announced it has received FDA clearance to market the Desai VectorCath(TM)
The Desai VectorCath(TM) Mapping System is a cardiac electrophysiology
mapping system for use with the previously FDA cleared five-electrode
two-plane Desai VectorCath(TM) Mapping Catheter. This system improves
procedural speed and accuracy with unprecedented ease of use. The Desai
VectorCath(TM) Mapping System's proprietary software and hardware provides
instantaneous directionality with distance estimate toward the endocardial
site of arrhythmia breakthrough.
"The Desai VectorCath(TM) Mapping System offers physicians and hospitals
an economic system that reduces mapping time and improves accuracy," said
Shawn Fojtik, CathEffects(TM) Chief Operating Officer. "Other mapping systems
are expensive, involve significant procedure set-up time, and tend to be used
only on select difficult cases. The Desai VectorCath(TM) Mapping System is
inexpensive when compared to other systems, requires almost no procedure
set-up time, and delivers instantaneous mapping data."
Mr. Fojtik added, "During a procedure, the Desai VectorCath(TM) Mapping
System can display a local isochronal activation map of the heart underneath
the footprint of the catheter in less than one second. The system's map shows
the physician which direction and approximately how far to move the catheter
to find the source of arrhythmia."
The company said that customer reaction to the Desai VectorCath(TM)
Mapping Catheter and Mapping System has exceeded expectation.
Electrophysiology ("EP") is a subspecialty of cardiology that examines the
electrical activity of the heart with catheters placed inside the heart's
chambers. During an EP procedure, the electrophysiologist can map the heart's
atria and/or ventricles and identify the focus of abnormal heart rhythm.
The Desai VectorCath(TM) Mapping Catheter and Mapping System were invented
by Jawahar M. Desai, M.D., F.A.C.C., of Roseville, California and is licensed
to CathEffects(TM) with 15 other patents.
CathEffects(TM) designs, develops, and manufactures electrophysiology
mapping catheters, mapping systems, and ablation catheters.
