Transseptal needles

Cardiac Ablation for Non-AF Arrhythmias


Transseptal technique allows left atrial access from the venous system for catheter ablation of left-sided arrhythmogenic substrates. Many physicians prefer the transseptal approach; others use it when a transaortic (retrograde) approach is contraindicated.1

The Brockenbrough™ Curved Needles are sterile, single-use products designed to allow access to the left atrium during electrophysiology procedures.
