In the recent times, it has managed to expand its core structural heart business within Vascular and Cardiac Group. It hit headlines with impact when the provider announced the first enrollment to its STOP AF First clinical trial.
According to Yahoo, STOP AF First happens to be a prospective, interventional, multicenter, controlled, randomized, clinical trial with a huge capacity. In fact, it succeeded at enrolling about to 210 patients in some about 30 sites located within the U.S over duration of 12 months.
While addressing a board meeting lately, one of the top company executives made an important point. He outlined that the trial was expected to asses both the effectiveness as well as the safety of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). This needed to be done before the patient in question could be subjected to antiarrhythmic medications.
This test is expected to help reach to a conclusive and elaborate determination on whether or not earlier treatment with the Cryoballoon had any significance. The most important part was to establish if it bore the capacity to improve outcome for a greater number of AF patients.
Some of the top experts working with the American Heart Association have outlined that AF is an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) with the potential to culminate into blood clots, heart failure, stroke and other heart-related complications.
