Topera Medical to showcase RhythmView system at HRS annual meeting

Topera Medical today announced that its FDA-cleared RhythmView™ 3D mapping and diagnostic system will be featured in 16 scientific presentations at the 33rd Annual Scientific Sessions of the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), May 9-12 in Boston. The presentations will provide clinicians with additional information about the electrical source of atrial arrhythmias and will also introduce information on sources that drive ventricular arrhythmias.    

"RhythmView's contribution to these presentations speaks to the expanding interest in applying this 3D mapping platform in clinical practice," said Edward Kerslake, Topera Medical's Chief Executive Officer. "RhythmView's ability to resolve rotors in ventricular arrhythmias will be reported for the first time. This represents an interesting application for RhythmView beyond the atrial rotor mapping previously reported, and is a logical extension of our platform technology. As we prepare for the commercial launch in early 2013, we are pleased to see Topera's technology taking a lead role in transforming the way electrophysiology procedures are performed."
