How PFA Works

Electrophysiology / Cardiac Mapping and Ablation Therapies / Farapulse™ Pulse Field Ablation System  / What is PFA?

 

The FARAPULSE™ PFA System works differently.

The Shape of the Future.

The FARAPULSE Pulsed Field Ablation System produces durable, effective lesions and minimises collateral damage risks associated with thermal energy sources.1 Validated more than any other pulsed field ablation (PFA) system, FARAPULSE PFA is pioneering possibilities for the future of tissue-selective ablation.

Collateral-tissue safety with proven PVI durability.

Tissue-selective ablation.

Unlike thermal energy applications, the FARAPULSE Pulsed Field Ablation System uses a proprietary waveform to ablate cardiomyocytes which have lower electric field damage thresholds while preserving surrounding tissue — despite exposure to the field.2

Proven procedural prescription for successful PVI.

Pulsed field ablation is highly parameter-dependent, and slight variations in polarity, waveform, catheter electrodes, pulse characteristics, or applications can be the difference between acute or chronic success.4 The FARAPULSE Pulsed Field Ablation System was optimised through years of iterations to define and validate the dose with catheter, waveform, and application sequence.

All three cohorts showed 100% acute PVs isolated, though lesion durability varied significantly at remap (~3 months). Acute isolation alone is not enough to assure durable lesions — remapping data validates the FARAPULSE Pulsed Field Ablation System’s optimal dosing and applications for long-term success.1

Pulsed field ablation offers [an] effective method for atrial fibrillation ablation, with a reduced risk of collateral damage...
I would strongly recommend having PFA in the EP toolbox.
