BACKGROUND To address some of the shortcomings of existing remote catheter navigation systems (RNS), a new magnetic RNS has been developed that provides real-time navigation of catheters within the beating heart. The initial experience using this novel RNS in animals is described. METHODS AND RESULTS A real-time, high-speed, closed-loop, magnetic RNS system (Catheter Guidance Control and Imaging) comprises 8 electromagnets that create unique dynamically shaped ("lobed") magnetic fields around… CONTINUE READING
