Abstract

Catheter ablation for treatment of atrial fibrillation and associated arrhythmias has become a very common procedure in the electrophysiology laboratory. Remote magnetic navigation (RMN) of catheters uses operator-designated changes in magnetic fields centered on the patient's torso to deflect and maintain the position of an electrode at the end of a mapping/ ablation catheter. Catheters can also be maneuvered by nonmagnetic, robotic manipulation of the catheter tip. Remote catheter manipulation decreases operator fluoroscopic exposure and fatigue, but the advantages do not benefit the patient and staff in the procedure room. Procedure duration appears to be somewhat longer with magnetic as opposed to manual catheter movement, with tradeoff benefits of more precise electrode movement, more consistent electrode tissue contact, and almost nonexistent perforation or steam pop risk. Newer technologies for remote catheter manipulation may further improve procedure times and outcomes and lower fluoroscopic exposure while improving efficiency.
