Electrophysiology Robotics Program
Atrial fibrillation, the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia, affects approximately 3 million Americans today. That number is expected to grow to 12 million by 2050.1 Treatment options include medication, life style changes, and surgical options such as catheter ablation. Multiple studies have demonstrated that catheter ablation is a viable treatment option for atrial fibrillation patients.2
With the growing prevalence of atrial fibrillation, hospitals with electrophysiology and cardiac arrhythmia programs will likely experience growing demand for atrial fibrillation treatments. Implementation of the Sensei X Robotic System has the potential to improve patient through- put through procedural efficiency, predictability, and cath lab utilization.3
