Abbott won clearance from FDA for its Advisor HD Grid Mapping Catheter, Sensor Enabled. The device is used to create detail-rich electrophysiologic maps of the heart based on the signals measured via the multi-electrode array at its distal end coupled with magnetic sensors. It is therefore able to spot sources of arrhythmias and to point to them in the context of the patient’s own anatomy. Following localization of errant signals, ablations are typically performed to remove the offending tissue.

The catheter relies on the company’s EnSite Precision Cardiac Mapping System, which displays the maps, and can be utilized to work within any chamber of the heart.

The 16 electrode array at the end of the catheter has an unusual, spoon-like shape that Abbott believes produces high quality, high density maps of the electrical activity within the heart. The company says that common circular or linear mapping catheters can have signal perturbations when rotated. Advisor HD Grid’s shape provides coverage in the horizontal and vertical planes at the same time, which should hopefully reduce signal problems.
