Results from case studies are not necessarily predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.

Why choose the VersaCross Steerable Access Solution

Precise steering

VersaCross Steerable Sheath with TruGlide handling, steering from straight to 180 degrees.

TruGlide™ handling

Responsive, smooth, high-precision steering to confidently position your curve

Clinical highlights

November 2022, study led by Dr. Dewland, published in JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology

Randomized comparison of a radiofrequency wire versus a radiofrequency needle system for transseptal puncture

RF wire-based transseptal workflow resulted in a faster time to transseptal puncture, with fewer exchanges for RF ablation, compared to an RF needle-based workflow.

25% faster

Time to first transseptal puncture with less variability in procedure time

32% faster

Total transseptal puncture time with the RF wire-based workflow

30% lower

Trend for overall fluoroscopy time compared to needle-based workflow

Publication summaries

October 2023, Berggren et al., published in Indian Pacing and Electrophysiology Journal

In atrial fibrillation (AF) patients, utilization of the VersaCross Steerable Sheath and pigtail RF wire for transseptal puncture and RF ablation reduced the number of device exchanges, leading to improved procedural efficiency compared to the standard workflow (puncture using an NRG™ RF needle and 8.5F sheath, followed by exchange for an Agilis™ NXT steerable sheath).

November 2022, Dewland et al., published in JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology

RF wire-based transseptal workflow resulted in a faster time to transseptal puncture, with fewer exchanges for RF ablation, compared to an RF needle-based workflow.

December 2021, Hiner et al., published in Journal of Innovations in Cardiac Rhythm Management

This single-center retrospective analysis of catheter stability evaluated contact force consistency during radiofrequency ablation using two different steerable sheaths. 

White papers
