The Khelix™ Loop Electrophysiology Catheter facilitates electrophysiological mapping of the heart, particularly of the left atrium. It consists of a handle and a shaft with a distal loop containing an array of platinum-iridium electrodes for stimulation and recording. The device is is available in a number of different electrode configurations, curve types and variable or fixed loop diameters.
Loop Release Feature: In the event the distal loop is entangled within the cardiac structures, the inner stylet can be withdrawn from the outer catheter sheath, reducing the stiffness in the distal loop and the force required to free the loop. After disentanglement from the heart structure, the catheter must be removed from the patient and discarded.
The Khelix™ Loop catheters are available in CE Mark countries, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. The devices are not available in the USA.
