CardioFocus, Inc. Key Developments

CardioFocus Announces HeartLight(R) Now Available in Spain for the Treatment for Atrial Fibrillation

CardioFocus, Inc. announced that its technology is now available in Spain for clinical use. Physicians at Hospital Universitari i Politecnic La Fe in Valencia were the first in the country to offer the innovative catheter ablation technology for the treatment of AF, the most common heart rhythm disorder in the world. The HeartLight EAS is the first catheter ablation system to incorporate an endoscope for direct visualization of the pulmonary vein in a beating heart, in real time and without radiation. It also includes a compliant balloon catheter designed for improved contact with the area surrounding the pulmonary veins, irrespective of individual patient anatomy, and a laser energy source designed to deliver more efficient, precise, and durable ablation treatment.

CardioFocus, Inc. Completes Enrollment in HeartLight(R) U.S. Pivotal Trial

CardioFocus, Inc. announced that it has concluded enrollment of its U.S. pivotal trial evaluating the HeartLight system, for the treatment of symptomatic paroxysmal AF. The randomized, controlled trial completed enrollment of over 400 patients from 21 leading research sites across the United States. The two-arm study investigated the use of the endoscopically guided HeartLight catheter in comparison to ordinary radiofrequency ablation using the NaviStar(R) THERMOCOOL(R) Catheter (Biosense Webster). A single ablation procedure was conducted in the HeartLight arm, while a repeat ablation was permitted with the THERMOCOOL system. The primary endpoints include an assessment of safety and an evaluation of efficacy, which is defined as freedom from documented, symptomatic AF at one year. With these findings, CardioFocus plans to submit a Premarket Approval (PMA) filing with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for HeartLight EAS following the completion of follow-up. The HeartLight system is CE marked and is commercially available for this indication in the European Union and Australia. The HeartLight EAS is the first catheter ablation system to incorporate an endoscope for direct visualization of the cardiac anatomy in a beating heart, in real time and without radiation. It includes a compliant balloon catheter designed for improved contact with the pulmonary vein ostium (opening) irrespective of individual patient anatomy, and a laser energy source designed for more efficient, precise and durable ablation therapy.
