São Paulo, Brazil, 30 May 2021 — The Columbus 3D EP Navigation System (Columbus®), developed by Shanghai MicroPort® EP MedTech Co., Ltd. (“MicroPort® EP”), has successfully performed its first procedure in Brazil. The successful procedure for atrial fibrillation, associated with atrial flutter, marked the first 3D procedure using MicroPort® products in Brazil since MicroPort® EP entered the Brazilian market. This makes it the fourth Latin American country to have successfully completed 3D procedures with Columbus®, following the Dominican Republic, Argentina and Ecuador.
The procedure, which also saw the use of MicroPort® EP’s ancillary FireMagic® Cool 3D Irrigated Ablation Catheter and EasyLoop® Circular Mapping Catheter, was performed by a team led by Dr. Angêlo de Paola at Hospital São Paulo. MicroPort®’s Columbus® was highly regarded by the team for its robust performance and clear and stable EP recording system feature. After the procedure, the team expressed their hope to further explore arrhythmia treatment solutions together with MicroPort® EP in the future.
Dr. Yiyong Sun, President of MicroPort® EP, said, “To date, MicroPort® EP products and services have reached more than 20 countries and regions, including Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin America and Oceania, providing doctors and patients with cardiac arrhythmias with a comprehensive EP solution.
