A cardiac ablation device treats atrial fibrillation by directing and focusing ultrasonic waves into a ring-like ablation region (A). The device desirably is steerable and can be moved between a normal disposition, in which the ablation region lies parallel to the wall of the heart for ablating a lo ...

James D Savage, Jaime Merino: Steerable catheter. ProRhythm, Lerner David Littenberg, Krumholz & Mentlik, November 30, 2006: US20060270976-A1

A steerable catheter has a steering portion incorporating a spear cut junction of catheter material, thereby providing for a gradual change in flexibility in the steering portion. A guide tube and spring may be located inside a pull wire lumen of the catheter, with the spring distal to the guide tub ...
