Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Catheter Robot
Device: Amigo catheter robot
The Amigo Catheter System is intended to facilitate manipulation, positioning and control of a Diagnostic Catheter.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Navigation Performance [ Time Frame: During Procedure ]
    Effectiveness Navigation Performance -- The ability to navigate the mapping catheter under Amigo control to at least 80% of 8 pre-specified anatomical locations over all subjects.

  2. Evaluation of Major Complications [ Time Frame: Seven Days (visit 3), except for any subject with an ongoing SAE that is related to the study will be scheduled for additional evaluations at 14 day intervals. ]
    Safety Evaluation of Major Complications definitely or probably related to Amigo-Controlled Mapping through Visit 3 follow-up.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. > 18years of age.
  2. Indicated for a right-sided electrophysiology ablation study (e.g., atrial flutter, AVNRT, right-sided accessory pathway, or ventricular tachycardia).
  3. Willingness, ability, and commitment to participate in the procedure visit and a follow-up evaluation including a clinic visit at 7 (-0, +7) days after the study procedure.
  4. Completion of Informed Consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Any contraindication to cardiac catheterization, including pregnancy.
  2. Enrollment in any other ongoing cardiac device trial.
  3. Right-sided cardiac prosthetics including implanted active energy devices with permanent leads in or through the right atrium and/or ventricle.
  4. Corrected or uncorrected atrial septal defect (ASD).
  5. Poor general health that, in the opinion of the Investigator, will not allow the subject to be a good study candidate (i.e., other disease processes, mental capacity, etc.).
  6. Medical condition that will require anticoagulation during study or ablation procedure.
  7. Presence of atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter at time of study procedure.
  8. Other condition observed prior to the procedure where, in the view of the physician, participation in the study could further present a risk to the subject.
