Hansen Medical is showcasing its new Lynx Robotic Ablation Catheter this week at Venice Arrhythmias 2009, an International Workshop on Cardiac Arrhythmias in Venice, Italy. Pending CE Mark approval, the Lynx catheter is expected to be available in the European Union within the first half of 2010.The small, flexible irrigated ablation catheter is designed for use during the treatment of electrophysiology disorders including atrial fibrillation. The company is also showing its Sensei X Robotic Catheter System and the Artisan Extend Control Catheter, both of which were formally introduced Sept. 15. The new Lynx robotic ablation catheter, which is supported by the Sensei X platform, leverages the navigation capability of the Artisan Extend catheter, but in a smaller and more flexible profile. Offering a seven French irrigated ablation tip with a standard sized sheath, the new Lynx catheter has six degrees of freedom. This flexibility facilitates placement in difficult to reach anatomic locations.
