Peristaltic pump plays key role in cardiac ablation system

04 December 2023

Medical device manufacturers livetec Ingenieurbüro GmbH and OSYPKA are using a 400RXMD peristaltic pump from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) as part of a cardiac ablation system, for its high reliability and ease of operation.

The OEM pump is specifically designed for surgical ablation systems with simple integration (which reduces time and cost associated with extended installation), low noise levels, and precise control. 

Radiofrequency catheter ablation can be used to treat cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat) directly on the heart. During treatment, radiofrequency energy (500kHz) is transmitted to the treatment site via a catheter inserted through a vein, under X-ray control.

The ablation system, developed by livetec and OSYPKA, consists of the RF generator, a remote control unit, and an irrigation pump for flushing and cooling the catheter during cooled ablation procedures. Together, they form a comprehensive system for almost all ablation applications on the human heart.
