EPs Using Contact Force Sensing Catheters
To date I have been unsuccessful in finding or creating a list of Electrophysiologists (EP) usaing Contact Force Sensing Catheters. Two companies make the Contact Force sensing catheters currently on the market:
• Biosense Webster’s Thermocool Smart Touch irrigated tip ablation catheter with force sensing technology, 800-729-9010, 909-839-8500.
• St. Jude Medical’s TactiCath (Endosense) contact-force sensing ablation catheter, 800-328-9634, 651-756-2000
Neither company could provide me with a list of EPs or ablation centers using their contact force sensing catheters. One said that legally they couldn’t hand out such a list due to confidentiality agreements.
I will continue looking for this information and update this page when appropriate.
