Achieve and Achieve Advance Mapping Catheters

Cardiac Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation


The Achieve and Achieve Advance™ Mapping Catheters are intra-cardiac electrophysiology diagnostic catheters designed for use with the Arctic Front Cardiac Cryoablation Catheter Family and the FlexCath Advance™ Steerable Sheath.

Product Details

The Achieve and Achieve Advance Mapping Catheters are intra-cardiac electrophysiology diagnostic catheters, which allow for the assessment of pulmonary vein isolation during the cryoablation procedure. The catheter is deployed through the Arctic Front Cryoballoon Catheter Family guide wire lumen, minimizing the number of catheter exchanges and allowing the procedure to be performed using a single transseptal puncture. The mapping catheter may also provide recording of real-time PV potentials during cryoablation with the Arctic Front Cryoballoon Catheter Family.

The distal mapping section of the Achieve Catheters is a circular loop with eight to ten evenly spaced electrodes for mapping electrical conduction between the left atrium and pulmonary veins. The catheter may also be used for cardiac stimulation during electrophysiology studies. The Achieve catheter features a cable with ten shielded ECG pins to connect into standard EP recording and pacing equipment.

The Achieve Advance Mapping Catheter was developed to allow for iteration and innovation and offers the following:

  • Solid core design which provides an extendable platform to allow future device enhancements
  • An additional 25mm loop size which may improve ability to visualize TTI and accommodate varied PV anatomy
  • Compatibility with cardioversion to reduce the need to remove catheters
