“Radiation exposure is a truly vital issue for all interventional electrophysiologists. Deployment of non-fluoroscopic mapping techniques in the last decade helped to achieve significant radiation reduction. Nevertheless, fluoroscopy remains the key non-virtual imaging tool in several areas: for cryoballon pulmonary vein isolation, for left atrial appendage occlusion, for obtaining difficult intravascular/ intrapericardial access, for management of periprocedural complications. Cathpax makes all these procedures truly operator-safe and it should be a must in all up-to-date cathlabs.”
