NogaStar® Mapping Catheter has been designed to facilitate electromechanical mapping of the heart. The catheter has a high-torque shaft with a deflectable tip section containing an array of platinum electrodes that can be used for recording. The NogaStar® Catheter can be manipulated in six degrees of freedom (x, y, z, roll, pitch and yaw) within the chamber of interest. Using the data gathered from the location sensor and the electrical signal from the tip electrode, the Noga® XP System measures position and distance of each point in relation to the other points,as well as local electrical activity and mechanical movement associated with each point. The data generated can be used to detect dysfunctional areas of the heart.
