Brief Summary:

The purpose of this clinical study is to assess the safety and performance of the Vision-MR Ablation Catheter, the primary safety endpoint will measure the rate of serious adverse events related to the device or procedure; the primary performance endpoint will measure the acute success rate defined as the demonstration of bidirectional cavo-tricuspid isthmus block after radiofrequency application in the cavo-tricuspid isthmus; the secondary performance endpoint will measure the chronic success rate defined as the freedom of recurrence of type 1 atrial flutter at three months post-ablation procedure. The study will be a single center study conducted at the Leipzig University Hospital Heart Center in Germany. The study population will consist of adult patients requiring ablation for type I atrial flutter.

This is the follow-up study to NCT02699034.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Atrial Flutter Procedure: ablation for typical atrial flutter Device: catheter ablation with study device Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The study will be a single center study conducted at the Leipzig University Hospital Heart Center in Germany. 35 subjects subjects meeting inclusion/exclusion criteria will participate in the study. This study requires the use of investigational products from two independent manufacturers: Imricor and Philips. Imricor has developed the ablation catheter with related accessory cables and electrophysiology (EP) recorder/stimulator system. Philips has developed an image guidance and mapping system that is compatible with the Imricor products.

The Vision-MR Ablation Catheter will be used in conjunction with the following investigational products: Vision-MR Ablation Cable Set, Vision-MR Diagnostic Cable, the interventional MRI Suite (iSuite) image guidance and mapping system, and a dStream Interface (dSIF-FE). With the exception of iSuite and dSIF-FE, which are manufactured by Philips, Imricor will provide all investigational devices used in the study.

Each procedure will require two single-use Vision-MR Ablation Catheters and one each of the two single-use accessory catheter cables.

Ablation for the treatment of arrhythmia is an inherently complex procedure. Use of the investigational products listed above under MR guidance is an emerging approach to performing the interventional electrophysiology procedure.

The study population will consist of adult patients requiring ablation for type I atrial flutter.

Study subjects will require a follow-up visit or telephone call at seven days post procedure. Accordingly, the expected total study duration is approximately 9 months with study start planned for February 2017.

This is the follow-up study to NCT02699034 which was terminated early based on a recommendation by the oversight authority. The study device (Vision-MR ablation catheter) has been improved and the EP recorder/stimulator is now CE-marked.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ablation for typical atrial flutter
This group receives an MR-guide ablation for atrial flutter with the study device ( Vision-MR ablation catheter )
Procedure: ablation for typical atrial flutter
Typical atrial flutter is treated by catheter ablation.

Device: catheter ablation with study device
The study device is used inside the MRI environment to localize the cavotricuspid isthmus (CTI). The CTI is then treated with radiofrequency energy to achieve complete isthmus block.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients with bidirectional cavo-tricuspid isthmus block after intervention [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
    Acute success defined as the demonstration of the established electrophysiological endpoint (e.g. bidirectional cavo-tricuspid isthmus block after radiofrequency application in the cavo-tricuspid isthmus) with the investigational device. Historically, the acute success rate for RF ablation of type I atrial flutter is 85%. Analysis will be based on a binomial proportion and expressed as a percentage. For a total of N subjects with S achieving success, the percentage, represented as P, will be calculated as P = 100*S/N.

  2. Number of patients with periinterventional serious adverse events [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
    The primary safety endpoint is the rate of serious adverse events (SAEs) related to the device or procedure assessed at the 7-day follow-up. Analysis will be based on a binomial proportion and expressed as a percentage. For a total of N subjects with S experiencing an SAE related to the device or procedure, the percentage, represented as P, will be calculated as P = 100*S/N.

  3. Number of patients with freedom from recurrence from type I atrial flutter 3 months (chronic success rate) after ablation (study procedure). [ Time Frame: 9 month ]
    The primary chronic performance endpoint is the chronic success rate defined as freedom from recurrence of type 1 atrial flutter at 3 months post procedure. Freedom of recurrence of type I atrial flutter is assessed using symptom survey, ECG and echocardiogram data. This will be evaluated separately for all subjects treated with the device and for all subjects that achieved acute success (defined by the primary acute performance endpoint).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients with freedom from recurrence from type I atrial flutter 6 months after ablation (study procedure). [ Time Frame: 9 month ]
    The secondary performance endpoint is the chronic success rate defined as freedom from recurrence of type 1 atrial flutter at 6 months post procedure. Freedom of recurrence of type I atrial flutter is assessed using symptom survey, ECG and echocardiogram data. This will be evaluated separately for all subjects treated with the device and for all subjects that achieved chronic success (defined by the primary chronic acute performance endpoint).
