Cardima Incorporated Company Profile

03:37 EST 19th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Cardima®, Inc. is developing minimally invasive, single-use, microcatheter-based systems for the mapping and ablation of the two most common forms of cardiac arrhythmias: atrial fibrillation ("AF") and ventricular tachycardia ("VT"). Arrhythmias are abnormal electrical heart rhythms that adversely affect the mechanical activities of the heart and can potentially be fatal.

The microcatheter systems under development are designed to provide enhanced access to arrhythmia causing tissue, to diagnose the arrhythmia by locating its origin ("mapping") and to restore normal heart rhythms by isolating and destroying the arrhythmia causing sites ("ablation") using radiofrequency ("RF") energy. They are being designed to incorporate multiple electrodes in the catheter tip that are designed to receive electrical signals for mapping and to emit RF energy for ablation, allowing physicians to both map and ablate using a single catheter.

They also feature variable stiffness and a highly flexible distal tip to allow enhanced access to the vasculature of the heart.

The company was founded and incorporated in November, 1992 and is based in Fremont, California.
