Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, US has launched a new robotic catheter guidance system to treat abnormal heart rhythms, becoming the first hospital in the region to use such a device.

The Sensei X Robotic Catheter System is used in a procedure called ablation, which treats irregular heartbeats such as atrial fibrillation and destroys small areas of heart tissue that trigger abnormalities.

The robotic system enables the physician to place the catheter in exactly the right spot and ensures the correct amount of pressure is consistently applied by the physician from the control room.

The catheter has the ability to burn away targeted tissue without puncturing the heart wall.
