Cambridge Design Partnership (CDP) has teamed up with King’s College London to develop a novel steerable catheter designed by King’s researchers. The catheter is designed to improve the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia – a range of conditions which can lead to stroke or heart failure that affects 2 million people a year in the UK.
The new steerable, micro-moulded catheter enables targeted delivery of radio frequency energy to specific points in the heart tissue for corrective treatment. Compared with traditional catheters, the new device has been designed to be quicker and easier to manoeuvre into the correct position, improving the accuracy of positioning and minimising damage to healthy tissue, which should improve success rates of the treatment.
