  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the change in average radiation exposure time and average procedure time following guided radiofrequency (RF) ablation among subjects undergoing treatment for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation with either the CARTO® 3 or the NavX(TM) System.

It is hypothesized that described features will reduce the average radiation exposure during the CARTO® 3 system-guided procedures compared to the NavX(TM) system-guided procedures.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Exposure Time [ Time Frame: End of procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary outcome measure of this study is to measure and compare total fluoroscopy exposure time (minutes) at the conclusion of radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, when guided by the CARTO® 3 or the NavX(TM) System in similar procedures.


Enrollment: 27
Study Start Date: November 2009
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Carto 3
Those subjects whose cases use the CARTO 3 EP Navigation System.
Device: Cardiac Mapping
Generating a cardiac map using the study device (CARTO 3) compared to the control device (NAVX[TM]) and measuring the amount of radiation exposure duration for each.
NAVX
Those subjects whose cases use the NAVX(TM) EP Navigational System.
Device: Cardiac Mapping
Generating a cardiac map using the study device (CARTO 3) compared to the control device (NAVX[TM]) and measuring the amount of radiation exposure duration for each.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Subjects referred for Radiofrequency ablation treatment for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All patients referred for a first radiofrequency ablation procedure for treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF episodes that last less than 30 days and are not terminated via cardioversion) and who are considered eligible for treatment by the physician.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • There are no study specific exclusion criteria for this observational study. The exclusion criteria will be conditions that, in the physicians opinion, preclude an RF ablation procedure because the procedure risks outweigh any potential benefits for the subject.
