Information about Stereotaxis’ Clinical Trial – MAGNETIC-VT


Stereotaxis is conducting a study to determine if having a VT ablation using the Niobe® ES Remote Magnetic Navigation system is better than using manual techniques.  This site contains information about the current clinical study sponsored by Stereotaxis, Inc. and registered on

In the Magnetic-VT Study, patients will be randomized (like flipping a coin) to have their VT ablation procedure performed by either remote magnetic navigation or  manual technique.  The physicians participating in this trial are experienced using both techniques, and both methods of doing this procedure as well as all of the equipment are approved by the FDA.  If you meet the following criteria, you will be considered to participate in the Magnetic-VT Study.

  1. 18 years of age or older
  2. Have an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD implanted)
  3. Diagnosed with Monomorphic VT that does not respond well to medications
  4. Have had a previous heart attack
  5. Left Ventricle ejection fraction of < 35%
  6. You area a candidate for ischemic VT RF Ablation

If you are enrolled into the study, you will be required to be seen in follow-up to closely monitor your progress.  Visits include a 3, 6, 9, and 12-month visit which include having an EKG, physical exam, and a questionnaire on how you are feeling.  After the 1-year visit, you will have completed your requirements for the study.
