“Santangeli has used the Acutus system to examine both persistent and long-standing persistent AF and finds it easy to use. “It does not require additional training beyond what’s needed for a standard AF ablation procedure,” he says. In his opinion, it helps that the mapping catheter provides ultrasound data for anatomy reconstruction as well as electrogram data for dipole density maps. He is able to identify more ablation targets with this system than with conventional mapping systems.
“On average, in my cases, we have identified two to three additional ablation targets when using this system,” Santangeli says. Frankel adds that he expects more competitors will come to market and electroanatomic mapping systems will continue to improve”
