Clinical Need

Therapeutic advances have presented new challenges which are underserved by current methods of imaging.

Real-time 3D (4D) imaging plays a critical and enabling role in the adoption of the increasingly complex structural heart procedures. To guide LAA closure, mitral valve repair and tricuspid valve repair procedures, operators currently rely on 4D TEE which requires a dedicated sonographer and general anesthesia. This imaging modality adds cost and time to the procedure and length of stay.

4D imaging on an ICE platform offers potential cost savings and enables structural heart procedures to be performed under conscious sedation in a cath lab setting.

In the United States, 2D ICE is currently used in ~85% of electrophysiology (EP) ablation cases. As EP ablation technologies continue to evolve and procedures become increasingly complex, there is a growing need for advanced intracardiac imaging beyond the capabilities of traditional 2D ICE.

4D ICE offers all of the imaging capabilities of current 2D ICE with the added spatial benefits of real-time intracardiac 3D guidance. The enhanced visualization enabled through 4D ICE also offers the potential for reduced radiation exposure during balloon-based ablation procedures.

Solution

NuVera 4D ICE Catheter

The visualization you need to make rapid intra-procedural decisions.

  • Features all imaging modes and advanced visualization tools associated with 4D ultrasound
  • Delivers a large field of view and fast frame rates with outstanding image quality as a result of hundreds of transmitting and receiving elements
  • Works with conventional ultrasound systems due to highly specialized application specific integrated circuit (ASIC)
  • Minimizes cost burden to healthcare systems
  • Facilitates femoral vein access which enables conscious sedation
  • Uses proprietary navigation and tip orientation features
