Sheba Medical Center the First to Employ an Innovative Catheter

Sheba Medical Center the First to Employ an Innovative Catheter
“The new catheter will allow us to pinpoint the source of arrhythmias precisely.”

Sheba became the first medical center in the world to employ a new innovative catheter that promises improved and faster remapping of complex arrhythmias. The advanced catheter utilizes eight separate electrodes to accurately assess cardiac electrical activity.

INNOVATIVE CATHETER

“Compared to existing catheters, this new device is a technological breakthrough,” said Prof. Eyal Nof, Director of the Invasive Electrophysiology Service at Sheba. “The new catheter will allow us to pinpoint the source of arrhythmias precisely, and its structure is such that we can cover a larger area while mapping them.”

Two patients were already treated by the new catheter, including one who suffered from a persistent arrhythmia that did not respond to previous catheterization attempts.

According to Prof. Roy Beinart, Director of the Sheba Arrhythmia Center, “At Sheba, we do our utmost to provide patients with the most cutting edge treatments. This is just one more example of arrhythmia therapy innovations that allow us to maintain high quality healthcare.”
