Evaluation of Ablation Index and VISITAG (ABI-173)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, acute and long term effectiveness, during standard RF ablation procedures while using Ablation Index and VISITAG software in combination with a Thermocool SmartTouch (ST) or SmartTouch Surroundflow (STSF) catheter. Furthermore, the role of Ablation Index and VISITAG workflow in creating contiguous ablation lines is assessed. The study is a prospective, non-randomized, post-market clinical evaluation. Up to 330 patients will be included in this study. All patients who qualify based on the study specific requirements will be invited to participate. The total duration of the study is estimated to be about 24 months (12 months enrollment period and 12 months of follow up). The clinical investigation population include subjects undergoing RF ablation for treatment of drug resistant symptomatic paroxysmal AF. Prior to enrollment in the clinical investigation, all subjects must meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria and are suitable candidates for enrollment in a clinical investigation in the opinion of the investigator. Subjects must have failed at least one antiarrhythmic drug (AAD) (Type I or III, including -blocker) as evidenced by recurrent or are intolerant of the AAD.
