In contrast, Magnetecs' CGCI system creates an electromagnetic field that is largely contained in the electromagnetic array and focused in an area no larger than the patient's chest.
The CGCI system is integrated with sophisticated cardiac mapping and navigation technologies, including X-ray, intracardiac echocardiography (ICE), and other advanced electrophysiology lab technologies and equipment.
This transaction represents the first sale in Asia of the Magnetecs CGCI
These cornerstone installations are expected to continue proving the efficacy, safety, and operational efficiency of CGCI
The animal studies summarized in this paper verified that the Magnetecs robotic CGCI
system can deliver rapid, stable, reproducible, and highly accurate maneuvering of catheters within the beating heart.
Reddy spoke about the challenges facing the field of electrophysiology and the potential of the Magnetecs robotic CGCI
system in meeting these challenges.
A "Live Case" study of the Magnetecs CGCI
system will be performed by Dr.
system provides greater catheter stability thus improving the physician's dexterity and the patient's safety.
Human studies using CGCI
for patients with arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, began on October 7, 2010 at Hospital General Universitario La Paz in Madrid, Spain.
To-date 15 patients have participated in the first 20-patient study in which a highly detailed map of the heart is created using the CGCI
system's magnetically guided catheter.
Magnetecs Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of robotic systems for minimally invasive surgical procedures, today reported that the Company's Robotic Catheter Guidance Control and Imaging (CGCI
) system and interim results of human studies using CGCI
for patients with irregular heartbeat will be presented at two upcoming international conferences in London and Tel Aviv.
