Multi-center first time we have clearly a direct correlation between low contact force and post-operative PVI line reconduction shown three month follow-up.

We look forward to continuing our leadership position in this area to firmly position contact – force control as a standard therapy for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. .. – New Contact force and force-time-integral mapping and visualization techniques can help electrophysiologists potential areas of PVI line reconduction help to long-term AF recurrence6, 7. 2006, Endosense has long been indisputable for the construction of scientific evidence supporting the value of contact-force sensing and the TactiCath, and today we are very proud to be a leader depth in the industry with a clinical program is unrivaled in its breadth, and committed contribution to clinical practice, said Eric Le Royer, president and chief executive officer of Endosense.

Rapid memory loss can be linked to and was able to predict Fatal Strokes can Former Severe.

Severity, rapid memory loss can be linked to – and was able to predict – Fatal Strokes can Former Severe, rapid memory loss can be predicted a future fatal stroke, according to research presented at the American Stroke Association International Stroke Conference 2012.

This difference is about the same as the average memory decline with increasing 4.1 years older among those who remained free of stroke associated. Due to the large hub declines memory disorders in stroke survivors. Studies are needed to determine whether differing effects of stroke in storage for different groups of people, for example, these effects may vary according to race, gender, geographic location and socioeconomic status.. The average score storage declined every year:0.078 points those who do not have a stroke while in the study, and 0.137 points from strokes in those who survived after a stroke, 0.205 points ahead of stroke in those who later died from a stroke.
