The launch of the latest KODEX-EPD cardiac mapping and navigation system is among the features Royal Philips will showcase at the 2022 European Heart Rhythm Association annual meeting (EHRA 2022, 3‒5 April, Copenhagen, Denmark), the company has revealed in a press release.
The latest KODEX-EPD system offers enhanced imaging and mapping capabilities for radiofrequency (RF) ablation, Philips said, including a new tissue engagement viewer and support for the Medtronic DiamondTemp ablation system. For cryoballoon ablation, KODEX-EPD supports a new saline-based occlusion assessment workflow.
Philips said it continues to engage with Medtronic to support physicians in ablation procedures to optimise patient outcomes and minimise exposure to X-ray and iodinated contrast media. The results of these activities will be presented during the EHRA congress at various scientific sessions and a Philips sponsored symposium.
Other highlights from Philips include enhancements to the company’s electrophysiology suite; the company’s newest lead management tools for the safe removal of infected cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) leads; and unobtrusive wearable ePatch extended wear Holter monitoring service, which became part of the Philips ambulatory monitoring & diagnostics portfolio after the recent acquisition of Biotelemetry.
