THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® SF Catheter

The porous tip of the catheter paired with contact force technology is designed to optimize efficiency. The THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® SF Catheter provides uniform cooling at half the flow rate of earlier generation irrigated catheters, easing the fluid management process. The catheter is seamlessly integrated with the CARTO® 3 System, which combines contact force technology, 3-D mapping and advanced navigation capabilities to provide active measurement of stable contact force and catheter tip location.

Features & Benefits

Uniform Cooling at Half the Flow Rate

Compared to SMART-AF study:

  • Procedure time reduced 19%1
  • Fluoroscopy time reduced 55%1

Improves Outcomes with More Stable Catheter-Tissue Contact Force

  • Allows active measurement of stable contact force and catheter tip direction
  • Provides consistent movement in response to contact force using precision spring
  • Sends accurate location reference signal via location sensor and transmitter coil
  • Promotes consistent lesion formation
  • Reduces ablation time2
  • Improves outcomes with more stable catheter-tissue contact force3
