Initial Results from First In-Human Study of Novel High Power-Short Duration Catheter

Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies* today announced that Biosense Webster, Inc.’s QDOT MICRO, a novel catheter that facilitates high power-short duration radiofrequency ablation, demonstrated safety and efficacy in achieving pulmonary vein isolation in patients with symptomatic drug-refractory paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in QDOT-FAST, the first in-human multicenter study of the device. Procedure and fluoroscopy times were also reported to be shorter than ablation with conventional catheters. Reducing use of fluoroscopy alleviates the burden of lead for physicians and staff, and reduces exposure to radiation for patients.
