nMarq AF Catheter Ablation Trial
The nMarq trial, conducted in cooperation with Biosense Webster, involves the use of a new circular irrigation electrode catheter to perform curative ablation in patients with atrial fibrillation. The catheter is placed at the opening of the pulmonary veins in the hope that ablation from multiple poles simultaneously will shorten procedure times, enhance patient outcomes, and reduce patient risk. Our physicians are among few select individuals in the country who are involved in this exciting, promising research trial
