Nanjing, China – The Columbus™ 3D EP Navigation System ("Columbus™") that developed by Shanghai MicroPort EP MedTech Co., Ltd. ("MicroPort® EP") impressed attendees of the 10th Ventricular Arrhythmia Symposium ("VAS-CHINA") in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province with its outstanding performance in tackling ventricular arrhythmias.
Columbus™ was well recognized by the conference moderator Professor Minglong Chen of Jiangsu Province Hospital & the first affiliated hospital with Nanjing Medical University for its stability and outstanding performance when compared with imported 3D systems at the stage.
It also won positive feedback from Professor Wenqing Zhu and Professor Kuan Chen of Zhongshan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University. They presented the use of Columbus™ to treat frequent premature ventricular contraction at the VAS-CHINA. Professor Zhu found the earliest sites in the RCC and measured successful ablation after mapping in the RA, LV and aortic sinus.
A seminar titled "Columbus™: Navigation for the Heart" was chaired by Professor Lianjun Gao of the First Hospital affiliated to Dalian Medical University during the conference period. Professor Feng Ze of Peking University People's Hospital gave full credit to Columbus™ in providing guidance to clinical practice with its characteristics of accurate measurement, accurate positioning and easy to interpret. He shared his experience in using Columbus™ system to complete two rare cases of atrial tachycardia originated from atrial septal and pulmonary vein. Professor Chaoqun Zhang of the Affiliated Hospital of Xuzhou Medical University reported on the case of Electrocardiogram features and ablation procedure of outflow tract ventricular premature beat. At the end of the seminar, Professor Xiaomeng Yi with the First Hospital Affiliated to Dalian Medical University suggested not to give up catheter ablation when sharing his experience in choosing between ICD and radiofrequency ablation for organic ventricular arrhythmias. Yi mentioned one patient who refused ICD implantation eventually stopped ventricular tachycardia attack by repeatedly catheter ablation. Gao ended the seminar by saying that the launch of Columbus™ had far-reaching influence on the domestic EP industry.
Ventricular arrhythmia is a common arrhythmia. Ventricular tachycardia, flutter and fibrillation are the main causes of sudden cardiac death. Effective prevention of ventricular arrhythmia has great clinical significance in preventing sudden cardiac death. Columbus™ is the first domestically developed 3D EP navigation system that features real time electromagnetic device tracking with cardiac motion compensation. It is also the only domestically made 3D EP navigation system with the CE certificate, which has won high recognition from domestic experts for its outstanding performance. As the only domestic company that provides a complete solution of cardiac EP treatment, MicroPort® EP will continue to strive for innovation and perfection to provide better arrhythmia solutions for patients and physicians.
