Taraz, Kazakhstan, 7 September 2021 — Shanghai MicroPort® EP MedTech Co., Ltd. (MicroPort EP) recently announced its debut in Kazakhstan, following the completion of the first procedure using MicroPort EP products since its entry into the country. The FireMagic™ Cardiac RF Ablation Catheter, the EasyFinder™ Steerable Curve Diagnostic Catheter, the PathBuilder™ Steerable Introducer, the PathBuilder™ Transseptal Guiding Introducer and PathBuilder™ Transseptal Needle were successfully used in an atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) procedure by a team of electrophysiologists from Zhurek Hospital in Kazakhstan.
The FireMagic™ Cardiac RF Ablation Catheter and other products were subsequently used in four other procedures, including for premature ventricular contractions, performed by the team at Zhurek Hospital. These products received favorable feedback from the team, who acknowledged their robust performance and ease of use during the procedures.
Kazakhstan is a major hub along the “Belt and Road” with a population of nearly 20 million. A number of products independently developed by MicroPort EP were approved for marketing by the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan in May 2021. The completion of the first implantation marks the recognition of MicroPort EP products in the Kazakhstan market, and lays a solid foundation for its expansion into Central Asia.
