Benefits of Vektor Medical’s vMap™ presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2020

vMap™ was presented as an innovative technology that may improve “efficiency and precision” in the treatment of complex arrhythmias. All five patients treated with vMap™ and radio-ablation experienced successful outcomes with significant reduction ICD shocks (29±16 to 0.6±0.9) with no adverse events reported.

Vektor’s vMap™ Technology Used Alongside SAbR Planning Software (Varian, Palo Alto, CA) for Non-Invasive Mapping and Radio-ablation of Refractory Ventricular Tachycardia

Life-threatening heart rhythm disorders such as ventricular tachycardia may be eliminated using cutting-edge, non-invasive technology as an alternative to standard invasive catheter ablation procedures, in some cases. In an abstract and associated poster published at the American College of Physicians’ Southern Regional Conference, researchers report successful use of vMap™ technology to guide stereotactic radiotherapy to destroy diseased heart tissue. Researchers report that this non-invasive mapping and ablation has “shown tremendous promise in recent years.” Importantly, for this patient, his “shock burden decreased from 34 ICD shocks in the 6 months preceding … therapy to 0 ICD shocks in the 11 months after treatment. His quality of life improved significantly, and he has resumed an active lifestyle”.

Computer-Based 12-Lead ECG Analysis Accurately Maps Ventricular Locations

Researchers, in an abstract and associated poster published in the Heart Rhythm Society’s journal Heart Rhythm, find that computer-based analysis of 12-lead ECG accurately mapped 93% of known ventricular locations to the exact ventricular segment.  The computer-based analysis required only 3 minutes, plus or minus 2 minutes, per ECG.

12-Lead ECG-Based Mapping Guides Non-Invasive Radiation Therapy

In an abstract published in the American Heart Association’s journal, Circulation, researchers conclude that a case of stereotactic radioablation of ventricular tachycardia illustrates efficacy of non-invasive 12-lead ECG mapping and radioablation in a patient who failed prior invasive VT therapies.
