Stereotaxis and Acutus Medical Announce First Integrated Cardiac Ablation Procedure with TeleRobotic Support

ST. LOUIS and CARLSBAD, Calif., July 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS) and Acutus Medical today announced the first integrated cardiac ablation procedure benefiting from remote TeleRobotic Support. Dr. Gery Tomassoni of Baptist Health in Lexington, KY treated the patient utilizing integrated Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation and Acutus AcQMap systems supported by technical and clinical experts from each company using proprietary connectivity technology.
The integrated therapeutic approach combines high-resolution, real-time cardiac imaging and mapping from Acutus' AcQMap system with the precision and stability of Robotic Magnetic Navigation. The integration of these advanced technologies enables physicians to clearly see a patient's arrhythmia pattern and then reach targets to deliver therapy with accuracy.The TeleRobotic capabilities on the Stereotaxis System provide remote support with real-time diagnostics, preventative troubleshooting, and specialized clinical support during live procedures without the incremental risk or need of having additional personnel in the operating suite.a??In the current and ever-evolving healthcare environment we have to adapt quickly,a?? says Dr. Tomassoni. a??Using TeleRobotics to collaborate with technology experts at Stereotaxis and Acutus has allowed me to maintain my attention on delivering the best therapy to my patients with a network of industry support available on demand.a??AcQMap uses high-resolution ultrasound imaging and charge density mapping to create a clear visual display of the patient's cardiac anatomy and arrhythmia conduction pattern in real time, informing ablation strategy beyond the pulmonary veins. Physicians can then use Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation to steer the catheter according to their treatment strategy, allowing for precise guidance in areas of the heart that can be challenging to access. Physicians operate in a control room during the procedure, reducing radiation exposure that can lead to cancer and other health issues.
