Endosense’s TactiCath® ablation catheter has undergone extensive pre-clinical and clinical validation in the United States and Europe.  Initial data has indicated that real-time contact force measurement with TactiCath may have a impact on the safety and efficacy of the catheter ablation procedure, while improving physician decision-making and potentially shortening procedure time. It has also shown a high correlation between the calibrated force applied during catheter ablation and the TactiCath force sensor output.

Endosense’s growing body of study data has been the subject of numerous abstracts presented at annual meetings of the Heart Rhythm Society, American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association.
