8F Ultrasound Catheter. The new AcuNav 8F is 33% smaller in itscross-sectional area than the previously released AcuNav 10F ultrasound catheter andenables improved access for left-heart applications in electrophysiology and interventional cardiology. Th e smaller 'eight French'size combined with the same high resolution and depth of imaging that is obtained with the 10F model is a significant improvement and allows access to a wider range of patients. "The size and flexibility of the new catheter were very impressive and providedus with improved visualisation of defectswith less trauma to the patients," said ZiyadM. Hijazi, MD, MPH, section chief of paediatriccardiology and professor of paediatricsand medicine at the University of Chicago, USA. Dr Hijazi and other clinical evaluatorsexpect that the catheter will change the wayatrial septal defect (ASD) closureprocedures are performed in smaller patients. "There will be no need to use transesophageal echocardiography in small patients, and the operator will be able to simultaneously perform the echocardiographic evaluation and the closure. The resources in the department will thus be used more efficiently," commented Dr Hijazi.8F Ultrasound Catheter
