Stereotaxis

Pinpoint Accuracy

More than five million people in the United States currently suffer from abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats. Those who suffer from these abnormal heart rhythms are five to seven times more likely to have a stroke or experience more permanent damage to the heart. Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) continues to be a leader in cardiac care, and is proud to be the first in Southwest Ohio to offer our patients the Stereotaxis Vdrive® robotic navigation system for the treatment of complex cardiac arrhythmias.

MVH has offered the minimally invasive Stereotaxis Niobe® magnetic navigation system for the treatment of a variety of arrhythmias since 2011, shortly after the opening of our Heart and Vascular Center. The Vdrive® upgrade, introduced October 2015, allows physicians to remotely control an ultrasound catheter with improved “real-time” picture quality of the heart’s anatomy while simultaneously maneuvering another catheter to ablate, or destroy, the diseased cardiac tissue causing the arrhythmia.

The biggest applications of the Niobe® and Vdrive® systems are in complex ablations, such as treating atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Used in combination with advanced three-dimensional mapping, Stereotaxis promotes pinpoint-accuracy within the heart’s intricate wiring. This further enhances the safety of ablation, and reduces radiation exposure.

How Do Patients Benefit from Stereotaxis

In offering Stereotaxis to our patients, we see:

  • Improved results in the treatment of both common and complex arrhythmias
  • Shorter procedure times, decreased radiation exposure, and reduced hospital stays
  • Increased likelihood of successful treatment of highly-complex arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia

For Medical Professionals

In addition to its accolades in ablating atrial fibrillation, the Stereotaxis Robotic Magnetic Navigation System offers similar advantage in ablating other complex arrhythmias including ventricular tachycardia, premature ventricular complexes, and atrial arrhythmias associated with structural heart disease.
