Topera Medical's FDA-Cleared RhythmView™ System Featured in Eight Presentations at the 2012 Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association


Topera today announced that its RhythmView™ 3D Electrophysiological Mapping System will be featured in eight presentations at the 2012 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions, November 3-7 in Los Angeles, CA. The presentations will provide clinicians with key information about RhythmView's ability to routinely identify the sources that sustain atrial fibrillation - specifically focal impulses and rotors.

About Topera Medical

Topera Medical (Topera, Inc.) has developed the RhythmView™, 3D Electrophysiologic Mapping System to assist electrophysiologists in the identification of the electrical source of complex cardiac arrhythmias. The RhythmView system, including the RhythmView console and FIRMap™ catheter, is designed to improve patient outcomes by enabling electrophysiologists to view a dynamic representation of the electrical activity of the heart, supporting the diagnosis of and treatment planning for a variety of arrhythmias including atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, and atrial fibrillation (AF).
