Stereotaxis Completes Installation of the World’s 1st Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation Systems to Treat Heart Rhythm Disorders at Helsinki University Hospital in Finland and Banner – University Medicine Heart Institute in Phoenix, Arizona

Stereotaxis today announced it has completed installations of the world’s first Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation systems to treat heart rhythm disorders at Helsinki University Hospital in Finland and Banner – University Medicine Heart Institute in Phoenix, Arizona.

“The clinical benefits of robotics in electrophysiology have been extensively documented at our hospital over many years,” said Dr. Pekka Raatikainen, Chief of Electrophysiology and Pacing at the Heart and Lung Center at Helsinki University Central Hospital. “With the adoption of the first Genesis systems in the world, we are proud to be a pioneer in the process of advancing robotic technology for the benefits of patients and the medical community.”

“The capabilities of robotics are growing at a rapid rate, moving us toward a paradigm shift in our practice,” said Dr. J. Peter Weiss, Director of Ventricular Arrhythmia Management and Robotics at Banner – University Medicine Heart Institute. “I am extremely excited to play a part in bringing this advanced technology to our community of patients and heart rhythm specialists throughout Phoenix and beyond.”

Stereotaxis notes the Robotic Magnetic Navigation introduces the benefits of robotic precision and safety to cardiac ablation, a common minimally invasive procedure to treat arrhythmias. Tens of millions of individuals worldwide suffer from arrhythmias, abnormal heart rhythms that result when the heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When left untreated, certain arrhythmias can significantly increase the risk of stroke, heart failure, and sudden cardiac arrest. The Genesis RMN® system provides the established benefits and reliability of RMN in a highly innovative architecture that is faster, smaller, lighter, and more flexible. Adopting the Genesis RMN system reflects a commitment to using the most advanced technologies to enhance patient care.

“Patients with medical conditions from the most complex to the most common seek us out for care in part because we remain on the cutting edge in technology and safety,” said Kristi McShay, Assistant Vice President for the Cardiovascular Line at Banner Health. “We are pleased to be the first in the nation to offer this new generation of robotics for treating heart rhythm disorders.”

“This technology allows us to positively address the increasing number of patients with complex arrhythmias. In addition, it provides us a competitive advantage to other Nordic centers concerning education and learning,” said Antti Vento, Medical Director of Helsinki Heart and Lung Center.

Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”

Leveraging the power of Apple Vision Pro to seamlessly blend digital content with the physical world Osso Health brings the operating experience to life via detailed, clinically accurate workflows of common procedures.
“We are excited to present the first look at the safety and clinical activity of ELVN-001, which we believe supports the potential for ELVN-001 to address the limitations of the available active-site TKIs,” said Helen Collins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Enliven. “Across a wide dose range, ELVN-001 demonstrated activity in a heavily pre-treated patient population that includes post-asciminib patients, with a preliminary safety profile consistent with its highly selective design. Not only did all evaluable patients have improved or stable BCR::ABL1 transcript levels, but, importantly, 89% of all patients enrolled remain on study. We believe the initial data demonstrate the potential clinical utility of ELVN-001 for all types of patients, including those that are earlier in the treatment paradigm.”
