Increasing Use of Ablation to Treat Atrial Fibrillation
EP Ablation Catheter Market to grow to over
With the increased clinical attention AF is generating, market competitors are increasingly targeting their product development efforts towards designing AF-specific catheters. The pending US approval of the first AF-indicated ablation catheter is expected to be the first of many devices to earn this designation.
“A number of leading competitors are developing therapeutic solutions for treating AF safely and effectively,” says

About Atrial Fibrillation
With an estimated prevalence approaching 3.2 million in the US in 2008, AF is the most common clinically significant cardiac arrhythmia. AF causes up to a 30% reduction in cardiac output, leading to shortness of breath and fatigue. AF is also a significant risk factor for stroke because blood pools form in the atria as a result of inefficient pumping, which then increases the likelihood of clot formation.
