“Here at the Heart Center Dresden, we are proud to have the opportunity and the commitment to pioneer forefront research in the field of cardiac arrhythmia treatment,” said Dr. Christopher Piorkowski, Head of Electrophysiology at the Heart Center Dresden. “Having recently completed the successful installation of one of the most advanced cardiac MRI setups in the world, we are now preparing for the first routine clinical applications of catheter ablation within the MRI. We expect groundbreaking new insights and an innovative push into our understanding and treatment of patients with structural heart disease and related cardiac arrhythmias.”
Imricor’s Advantage-MR System and Vision-MR devices are state-of-the-art cardiac ablation tools that allow physicians to perform procedures under real-time MRI guidance. Unlike conventional x-ray guided procedures, ablations guided by MRI allow physicians to individualize the treatment strategy for each patient’s unique cardiac structure and substrate as well as assess lesion quality and fill gaps in ablation lines during the initial procedure. These benefits have the potential to improve patient outcomes and provide safer, more cost-effective treatment – all in an environment that is free of radiation for both the patient and physician.
Prof. Dr. Bärbel Held, Managing Director of the Heart Center Dresden, commented, “I am very proud, together with Imricor and Dr. Piorkowski, for the heart center in Dresden to introduce and apply such an innovation. For our patients, this will be a big advantage in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. This is what the Heart Center Dresden stands for.”
“This is an exciting milestone for both Imricor and the Heart Center Dresden. It marks the beginning of the commercial clinical application of iCMR-guided ablations and a new age for interventional cardiology,” said Steve Wedan, CEO of Imricor. “Prof. Held has a brilliant vision for the future of medicine at Heart Center Dresden, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Dr. Piorkowski and his extraordinary team as we usher in this new age together.”
1Delivery of Vision-MR devices will commence upon CE mark approval of devices.
Imricor Medical Systems is a privately held company committed to unlocking the potential of interventional cardiac magnetic resonance (iCMR) by delivering MR-compatible systems and devices that allow physicians to perform cardiac ablations under real-time MRI-guidance.
