No PFA system is more validated.

The FARAPULSE PFA System is pioneering PFA with the first commercially available system for cardiac arrhythmias. Purpose-engineered, optimised and validated over 10 years through multiple pre-clinical and clinical trials and an ever-growing number of patients treated, the FARAPULSE PFA System holds more published clinical evidence than any other pulsed field ablation system.

The FARAPULSE Pulsed Field Ablation System is optimised for patient safety and procedural ease, addressing many traditional risks associated with thermal ablation while also producing proven, durable pulmonary vein isolations.

Finally we have technology that can help us increase procedural success rates, especially in complex forms of atrial fibrillation.

Collateral-tissue safety with proven PVI durability.

Collateral-tissue safety with proven PVI durability.

Pulsed field ablation is a very powerful technology for pulmonary vein isolation... A stringent ablation workflow is essential for durable good results.
