Abstract

A yearly global population of well over 100,000 ventricular tachycardia patients could benefit from guided cardiac ablation of otherwise untreatable intramural arrhythmogenic substrates. A guided catheter-based HIFU device used epicardially with a subxiphoid approach is proposed which is placed with electroanatomical mapping. After the HIFU device is positioned, the thermal strain feedback at low intensities can confirm myocardial contact and establish a projected power titration guideline for full HIFU ablation. This PZT based spherical array design is an early adjunct prototype of a fully beam steerable CMUT array design in development at Stanford.
