Remotely controlled steerable sheath improves result and procedural parameters of atrial fibrillation ablation with magnetic navigation.

Errahmouni A, Latcu DG, Bun SS, Rijo N, Dugourd C, Saoudi N - Europace (2015)

Bottom Line: No complication occurred in RSh group.During follow-up, there were five recurrences (11%) in RSh group and 11 (29%) in CAS group (P = 0.027).Right PV isolation is faster, RF delivery time and procedure time are reduced.

EUU388F1: The robotic deflectable sheath (V-CAS Deflect) fully undeflected (left panel) and fully deflected (right panel).

Mentions: Ablation procedures were performed in the fasting state under general anaesthesia or mild sedation. Venous punctures were performed under ultrasound guidance. Through the right femoral vein were introduced (i) a deflectable decapolar catheter positioned within the coronary sinus with the distal electrode positioned at 4–5 o'clock along the mitral annulus in the 30° left anterior oblique radiographic projection; (ii) a 20 pole, variable diameter circumferential mapping catheter to guide pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) (Lasso 2550, Biosense Webster Inc.) introduced within a long sheath (Preface Multipurpose, Biosense Webster Inc. or Fast-Cath SL1); and (iii) a 3.5 mm tip externally irrigated magnetic catheter (ThermoCool RMT, Biosense Webster Inc.) within a second long sheath. The second long sheath was the robotic deflectable sheath (RSh group, Figure 1) or a standard fixed-curve long sheath (Fast-Cath SL1) in the CAS group.Figure 1
