    Advances in Treating Atrial Fibrillation

    Thermocool SmartTouch® Catheter

    Contact force therapy has emerged as the most significant recent advancement in Afib treatment, demonstrating dramatically improved outcomes. The Thermocool SmartTouch® Catheter is a new pressure-sensing catheter that allows precise measurement of force on the heart wall for greater effectiveness and improved safety during the ablation procedure.

    Advanced 3D Mapping System

    The latest three-dimensional cardiac mapping system, acting like GPS navigation, is used to create virtual images of the heart’s anatomy and electrical system in real time. This enables our EP specialists to pinpoint the source of abnormal electrical signals more easily for better outcomes.

    Cryoballoon Catheter

    Baptist Health is one of only a few centers offering the Cryoballoon Catheter for freezing diseased heart tissue instead of cauterizing it during ablations. Used in earlier stages of Afib, it produces similar success rates compared with standard radiofrequency ablation and greater safety.
