Irrigated-Tip Magnetic Catheter Ablation Of AF: A Long-Term Prospective Study In 130 Patients


 The interesting paper by Pappone et al. 1 summarizes a single center experience using remote controlled (RC) magnetic catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). The magnetic navigation system (MNS, Stereotaxis, USA) represents a well-established catheter navigation and ablation platform, which has proven feasibility and safety in the treatment of various arrhythmias 2 3 4 5 6. The soft magnetic catheter aligns in parallel to an externally induced magnetic field, which is steered by two permanent magnets positioned next to the patient´s table.
