CathVision inks investment deal for electrophysiology system

Early-stage medical device company CathVision said today it inked a “multi-million venture investment” to support the development and marketing of its electrophysiology recording system designed for treating cardiac arrhythmia. The undisclosed investment came from Scandanavian-based VF Venture and Borean Innovation, Denmark-based CathVision said. “CathVision works in one of the fastest growing segments in medical technology. CathVision’s team has worked patiently and consistently with their product over a number of years, and we have followed the company for several years. I think CathVision represents an attractive investment target in a market with high activity,” VF Venture managing partner Tonni Bülow-Nielsen said in a prepared statement. “CathVision is one of the investments we have high expectations for. We have been on board since 2014 and we have now completed three capital raises in the company. We are very satisfied with the syndicate with VF Venture and look forward to the joint work towards market approval and roll-out,” Borean Innovation portfolio manager Lene Gerlach said in preapred remarks. CathVision develops and produces a low-noise EP system designed to help guide medical professionals to the right locations for cardiac ablation. The company said it is working with leading physicians and electrophysiologists to test and market the system, and that the new investment will allow the company to conduct clinical te...

Abbott Laboratories acquired St. Jude Medical earlier this year knowing that the company trailed behind its peers in the cardiac rhythm management (CRM) space by not having a MRI-compatible pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) system. It seems Abbott has officially caught up in that category though, first with FDA approval of the Assurity MRI pacemaker and the Tendril MRI pacing lead during the first quarter, and now with FDA approval of MRI-conditional labeling for the Ellipse ICD system. Abbott said the recent approval covers one of its most widely-used ICD systems and associated high voltage leads. ...

AbstractCardiac amyloidosis is a form of restrictive cardiomyopathy resulting in heart failure and potential risk on arrhythmia, due to amyloid infiltration of the nerve conduction system and the myocardial tissue. The prognosis in this progressive disease is poor, probably due the development of cardiac arrhythmias. Early detection of cardiac sympathetic innervation disturbances has become of major clinical interest, because its occurrence and severity limits the choice of treatment. The use of iodine-123 labelled metaiodobenzylguanidine ([I-123]MIBG), a chemical modified analogue of norepinephrine, is well established in...

ConclusionsThis DM mutant mouse model presented with clinical myofibril ultrastructural abnormality and cardiac arrhythmias, including atrial tachyarrhythmias, atrioventricular block, and ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Optical mapping studies revealed prolonged action potential duration and slow conduction velocity in the DM mice, leading to vulnerability of spatially discordant alternans and ventricular arrhythmia induction to pacing.

Medtronic won FDA clearance for its Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor with TruRhythm Detection. The device is used to spot and analyze difficult to diagnose arrhythmias over periods as long as three years. It is an upgrade of the original Reveal LINQ, now sporting algorithms that significantly reduce the number of false positive cases of atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, and false pause episodes. About as tall as a standard AAA, it is much thinner and is only about a third of its volume. It is implanted in the chest, just under the skin, not too far from the heart. The device continuously monitors the heart ...

Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) said today that it won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its CardioInsight Noninvasive 3D mapping system, which was designed to map irregular heart rhythms in the upper and lower chambers of the heart and provide electroanatomic 3D maps of the heart. The CardioInsight system is the 1st commercially available, noninvasive cardiac electrical mapping system in the world, according to Medtronic, and avoids the invasive steps of a traditional procedure to determine the origin of a patient’s irregular heart rhythm. Medtronic’s 3D cardiac mapping system employs a 252-electrode sensor vest, which i...

Biotronik said today it enrolled the 1st patients in the BioInsight clinical study of its BioMonitor 2 heart monitor, which looks to investigate the feasibility implanting the BioMonitor 2 in office settings. The BioMonitor 2 device is designed for remote monitoring of patients with atrial fibrillation, syncope, bradycardia and tachychardia, Biotronik said. The device uses Biotronik’s ProMRI technology and is approved for full-body MRI scans at 1.5 and 3 tesla strength. “One of the benefits of BioMonitor 2 is the ease of the insertion procedure, which typically only takes a few minutes. In-office proc...
