St. Jude obtains CE Mark approval for ICE catheter

Cardiac technology developer St. Jude Medical has received the European CE mark for its ViewFlex Xtra intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) catheter used for cardiac ablation procedures.

The product is designed to provide real-time, high-resolution ultrasound images of blood flow and cardiac anatomy when paired with the company's ViewMate Z intracardiac ultrasound console.

The catheter is inserted into the body through a small incision in the femoral vein in the leg and guided to the heart. It has a four-way directional tip. Its auto-lock steering function enables the catheter to be operated with a single hand. Improved maneuverability enhances procedural workflow, according to St. Jude.
