To obtain data for the Rhythmia™ Mapping System in conjunction with Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated (OI) Catheters for ablation of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (PAF) according to current international and local guidelines.
Primary objective: To assess acute and long-term outcomes for the Rhythmia Mapping System in conjunction with Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated Ablation Catheters to treat de novo Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation. De Novo PAF is defined as subjects undergoing first ablation procedure for PAF with no prior left atrial ablation (RF, Cryo, Surgical).
STUDY OBJECTIVE(S) -- To obtain data for the Rhythmia™ Mapping System in conjunction with Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated (OI) Catheters for ablation of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (PAF) according to current international and local guidelines.

INDICATION(S) FOR USE -- Study devices will be used per approved Indications for Use for each geography.
DEVICES / SYSTEM USED IN THE STUDY -- The study will include the following Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated Catheters in geographies where commercially approved for PAF ablation:
- Blazer Open-Irrigated Ablation Catheter
- IntellaNav Open-Irrigated Ablation Catheter
- IntellaNav MiFi Open-Irrigated Ablation Catheter
- IntellaTip MiFi Open-Irrigated Ablation Catheter
- Rhythmia Mapping System Gen 1or Rhythmia HDx, equipped with Software 1.4 or any successive commercially approved versions.
- IntellaMap Orion Catheter
CONTROL DEVICE -- There are no control devices in this study
STUDY DESIGN -- Prospective, non-randomized, multicenter (global), post approval clinical study (PAS). All subjects fitting the enrollment criteria, signing the consent and undergoing the index procedure with the study devices will be followed up for three years to complete the PAS design mandated from the FDA to collect post-market data for Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated Catheters and will be followed for three years.
PLANNED NUMBER OF SUBJECTS -- The study will enroll 415 subjects.
PLANNED NUMBER OF SITES / COUNTRIES -- The study is global (US, EU, Asia-Pacific) with 25-50 centers. A minimum of 50% of the sites will be selected from the US. No study site will be allowed to contribute more than 41 subjects (10% of the 415 enrollments requirement).
FOLLOW-UP SCHEDULE -- Study Follow-ups are at: pre-discharge, 1 month (phone check), 3 months (blanking period), 6 months (phone check), 12 months, 24 months and 36 months.
STUDY DURATION -- Study is expected to be completed in approximately five years (12-24 month enrollment period with three year follow-up).
PARTICIPANT DURATION -- The study duration for each subject is expected to be approximately three years.

The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of an Irrigated Ablation System for the treatment of symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.
The aim of this single-center prospective randomized controlled trial is to assess the superiority of contact-force-(CF)-sensing-based approach compared to conventional (non-CF-sensing) ap...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of 4 mm irrigated catheters with 2 mm irrigated catheters for ablation of typical flutter.It's a prospective randomised multicenter stu...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a chaotic heart rhythm of the top chambers of the heart. AF occurs in up to 10% of the population over the age of 60. It is associated with tiredness, impaired ...
Few studies evaluated the impact of catheter ablation (CA) on atrial tachyarrhythmia (ATA) burden in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF).
Ablation Index, also known as VISITAG SURPOINT™, is a novel lesion-quality marker that improves outcomes in radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). There is no direct evid...
Radiofrequency current (RFC) catheter ablation for patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) has been shown to be safe and effective in first-line therapy. Recent data demonstrates that RFC ab...
Pulmonary vein isolation by catheter ablation is a Class IA indication for the treatment of symptomatic, drug-refractory, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). Quality of life (QoL) has been identifie...
Different ablation devices deliver the same type of energy but use individual control mechanisms to estimate efficacy. We compared patient outcome after the application of radiofrequency ablation s...
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
Catheters designed to be left within an organ or passage for an extended period of time.
Catheters inserted into various locations within the heart for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
A condition characterized by the recurrence of HEMOGLOBINURIA caused by intravascular HEMOLYSIS. In cases occurring upon cold exposure (paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria), usually after infections, there is a circulating antibody which is also a cold hemolysin. In cases occurring during or after sleep (paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria), the clonal hematopoietic stem cells exhibit a global deficiency of cell membrane proteins.
Catheters inserted into the URINARY BLADDER or kidney for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
