Get your rhythm back.

Serious heart rhythm disorders called arrhythmias, affect the lives of millions of people daily. Unfortunately, most treatments for these conditions are generic and one-size-fits-all, with mixed results.


But there’s hope.


We believe there is a better way to treat serious heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Using Abbott Electrophysiology’s technology, doctors can identify the sources of arrhythmias that are unique to each person. Now treatment can be tailored to your individual needs.

The most common heart rhythm disorder, atrial fibrillation (AF, or afib) is a serious global public health problem which affects millions of people around the world. If left untreated, AF doubles the risk of heart-related deaths and also increases stroke risk by up to 500%. Unfortunately, although it is such a serious health problem, AF has historically been difficult to treat with an acceptable degree of success.

In response to this unaddressed need, Abbott, Inc. has developed a unique 3D analysis and mapping solution (the Abbott 3D Mapping System), which consists of the RhythmView Workstation and FIRMap diagnostic catheter. The Abbott 3D Mapping System has been designed to enable physicians to view the electrical activity of the heart, thereby supporting the diagnosis and patient-specific treatment planning for a variety of heart arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia.

The Abbott 3D Mapping System received FDA clearance in 2013 and is now in routine use at several leading medical centers throughout the United States.

Topera® Solution

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
– Sir Arthur C. Clarke

In the past, identifying patterns in complex arrhythmias was less than magical, particularly when using traditional ablation technologies. These patterns called rotors are organized, rotational waves that drive surrounding, disorganized activation or fibrillation. Just like the eye of a hurricane, rotors have an organized core that powers the surrounding chaos. Using Focal Impulse Rotor Mapping or FIRM-guided therapy, Abbott Electrophysiology offers a new method to identify the eye of the fibrillation storm, so physicians can not only see the chaotic patterns, but pinpoint the source of the arrhythmia. This cutting-edge technology is the Topera Physiologic Rotor Mapping Solution.

The Topera Physiologic Rotor Mapping Solution includes the RhythmView® Workstation and FIRMap® catheter. When used in combination, these components identify the rotors or sustaining mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation (Afib), atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. Because arrhythmias develop as a result of both electrical and anatomic abnormalities, every patient needs to be individually diagnosed and treated. The system offers a patient-specific solution that enables physicians, for the very first time, to identify and ablate the unique sources that sustain serious heart rhythm disorders.

It’s advanced technology…not magic.
