Laser Ablation System

The Device

The HeartLight® Endoscopic Ablation System delivers focused laser energy to treat atrial fibrillation.

The Challenge

CardioFocus’s ablation system required updating to integrate new technologies and components to improve the overall performance, ease of use, and market assessment of the therapy. The client partnered with Minnetronix’ systems solutions experts to develop an updated “Integrated Cart” system for use in PMA clinical trials. In less than eighteen months, Minnetronix developed, prototyped, verified, and delivered devices and the required documentation, allowing CardioFocus to initiate PMA trials.
