    6. Novel catheter enabling simultaneous radiofrequency ablation and optical coherence reflectometry

      Novel catheter enabling simultaneous radiofrequency ablation and optical coherence reflectometry
      A novel radiofrequency ablation catheter has been developed with integrated custom designed optics, enabling real-time monitoring of radiofrequency ablation procedures through polarization-sensitive optical coherence reflectometry. The optics allow for proper tissue illumination through a view-port machined in the catheter tip, thus providing lesion depth control over the RF ablation treatment. The system was verified in an in-vitro model of swine myocardium. Optical performance and thermal stability was confirmed after more ...
