“The results we’ve achieved with the Niobe system have elevated us to a world-class, modern cardiology institution,” said Professor Antoine Da Costa, Chief of the EP Unit at CHU de Saint-Étienne in France. That was two years ago, when the hospital was installing its second Niobe system to accommodate growing patient demand for “this high-tech solution,” he said.
As of today, Prof. Da Costa and his colleague Dr. Cecile Romeyer have completed nearly 2000 ablation procedures with the Niobe and authored five clinical studies on remote magnetic navigation. “We’ve found distinct advantages with the Niobe system over manual approaches, not only in patient outcomes but in our own productivity,” says Prof. Da Costa. “It has made it easier for us to organize and complete heavy daily clinical programs, with less fatigue at the end of the day.”
So exciting to see a program taking full advantage of the benefits of magnetic navigation!
