The VISITAG SURPOINT® Module calculates a Tag Index, a single value combining parameters of power, contact force and RF time, once catheter stability criteria have been met. The addition of Tag Index to the CARTO VISITAGTM Module allows greater visibility into your RF ablation strategy.1


Features & Benefits

  • Objective tagging based on customized CARTO VISITAGTM Module settings1
    • Built-in algorithm and standard workflow
    • Catheter stability parameters for accurate RF delivery
    • Distance measurement tool for tag contiguity
    • Anatomical presets for tissue variability
  • Integration with CARTO VISITAGTM Module tag visualization2
  • Continuous color-coded progress of your ablation strategy1

The CARTO VISITAGTM Module provides access to data collected during the application of RF energy. The data does not indicate the effectiveness of RF energy application. Do not use the Tag Index values generated from the VISITAG SURPOINT® EPU to guide RF energy delivery. Equivalent Tag Index values do not represent equivalent RF lesion size. The clinical utility of the Tag Index value has not been established. The Tag Index values should not be used to replace standard handling precautions or other clinically accepted endpoints for RF applications such as reduction of IC signals, impedance drop, and duration. All safety considerations, cautions, and warnings that apply to the general use of the CARTO® 3 System also apply while using this module. Users should follow the instructions for use of the compatible ablation catheters (i.e. THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® Catheter and THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® SF) to select ablation settings for an ablation procedure.

Important information: Prior to use, refer to the instructions for use supplied with this device for indications, contraindications, side effects, warnings and precautions.
