Dr. Mark Pollet, clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, and the Baton Rouge Cardiology Center team are proud to be the first in Baton Rouge to use the latest OCTARAY™ Mapping Catheter at the Baton Rouge General Medical Center.
This exciting new technology and innovative tool provides Dr. Pollet with the precise information needed for catheter ablation procedures that treat cardiac arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation (AFib). The catheter allows electrophysiologists to provide higher quality signals in a shorter time, which can improve procedure time and efficiency.
AFib is the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia and impacts nearly 40 million people worldwide. AFib is a progressive disease, and if left untreated can get worse over time or lead to other serious complications like heart disease or stroke. Catheter ablation is a safe and effective procedure to restore the heart’s incorrect electrical signals, which causes an abnormal heart rhythm. The OCTARAY Mapping Catheter can map arrhythmias in any chamber and provides physicians with enhanced clarity and speed to quickly capture precise information for better catheter ablation procedures.
