HOUMA- Dr. Kanwar Singh, electrophysiologist at Cardiovascular Institute of the South, was the first in the South Gulf region to use the Advisor™ HD Grid Mapping Catheter ™ for the treatment of complex cardiac arrhythmias.  He first used the omnipolar high-definition mapping catheter on May 23 at Terrebonne General Medical Center in Houma, La.

The Advisor™ HD Grid Mapping Catheter manufactured by Abbott offers a first-of-its-kind electrode configuration for high-density mapping.  The unique grid-patterned design makes it the only catheter to show wave-fronts in two dimensions at the same time.

“This new catheter shows more details of complex arrhythmias including ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation to improve both outcomes and efficiency for our patients,” explained Dr. Singh.
