Over 100 independent peer-reviewed publications and abstracts presented at scientific conferences, authored by nearly 30 different investigators, have featured FIRM-guided therapy as an atrial fibrillation treatment (AF or Afib). This section provides summaries of significant studies featuring the Topera® Physiologic Rotor Mapping Solution. None of these studies were funded by Topera Medical, now Abbott Electrophysiology.
- The CONFIRM Trial
- On-Treatment Analysis of CONFIRM
- Success In High-Risk Patients
- Multicenter Validation of FIRM Ablation
- CONFIRM Long-Term Outcomes
The complication rate reported for FIRM-guided procedures is comparable to the complication rate for non-FIRM-guided procedures. Additional information is available in the publications. As is the case with any interventional procedure, FIRM-guided procedures are not without risk. Discuss the risks and benefits with your physician to determine what is right for you.
Review all aspects of published studies to be fully informed as to the strengths and weaknesses of any particular study.
