    The CDC estimates that more than 10% of adults in the United States—more than 20 million people—suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Without treatment of CKD, your kidneys may stop working, a condition called kidney failure. Once this happens patients are faced with two options: dialysis or a kidney transplant.

  • TriStar Centennial Medical Center Participating in Pivotal Trial for nMARQ™ Catheter System for Treatment of Patients with a Trial Fibrillation

    Novel Irrigated Multi-Electrode Catheter Ablation System is Designed to Reduce Procedure Time and Complexity Nashville, Tenn., October 2, 2014- TriStar Centennial Medical Center is currently enrolling patients in the reMARQable clinical study, which will assess the safety and effectiveness of the nMARQ™ Catheter System for the treatment of patients with drug-resistant, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (Afib). The nMARQ™ System is a novel irrigated catheter ablation system that features a multi-electrode catheter designed to reduce procedure time and complexity. TriStar Centennial Medical Center is one of 26 sites in the U.S. and the first site in Tennessee to conduct this pivotal trial. In partnership with Sarah Cannon Research Institute’s (SCRI) cardiovascular research program, the study is being conducted by Gregory Bashian, M.D. and Chris Jones, M.D. with Centennial Heart Cardiovascular Consultants. “We are very excited to be the first center in the state to offer this new technology for our patients. Many of us have felt that this type of technology may advance our ability to achieve a permanent cure for the treatment of Afib,” said Chris Jones M.D., cardiac electrophysiologist for Centennial Heart Cardiovascular Consultants. During catheter ablation, doctors insert a therapeutic catheter through a small incision in the groin where it is then guided up to the heart through a blood vessel. Once it reaches the left upper chamber of the heart (left atrium), radiofrequency energy is delivered to the heart wall to create lesions that block faulty electrical impulses that can cause heart rhythm disorders. To treat atrial fibrillation (“Afib”), most electrophysiologists (EPs) today use a single electrode ablation irrigated catheter in a “point by point” manner in an attempt to create a continuous line of lesions around the openings of the pulmonary veins, located inside the upper left chamber of the heart (left atrium). The catheter’s single electrode tip applies radiofrequency (RF) energy to the heart wall to create lesions in the tissue. If the lesions or “points” are not properly connected around the pulmonary veins, abnormal electrical signals may escape through the gaps and the Afib may return – potentially requiring a repeat procedure. The nMARQ™ multi-electrode catheters are able to simultaneously create multiple lesions around the openings of the pulmonary veins with one application of power. The catheter is designed to help EPs efficiently complete procedures by reducing the number of power applications they would traditionally have to make around pulmonary vein openings with single electrode catheters. It features an adjustable loop design to accommodate a range of pulmonary vein sizes and is designed to reduce procedure time and complexity. “The nMARQ™ System is a promising new treatment option for patients with atrial fibrillation and we are looking forward to learning how its novel design might help the clinical community better serve patients in need of treatment,” said Gregory Bashian, M.D., cardiac electrophysiologist for Centennial Heart Cardiovascular Consultants. “Catheter ablation is a very effective treatment option for this patient population and we are always looking for new ways to improve clinical outcomes as well as procedural efficiency for this procedure.” Afib is the most common heart rhythm condition is the U.S. and is a leading cause of stroke among people 65 years and older. Afib causes the upper chambers of the heart, or atria, to beat rapidly and in an uncontrolled manner. Patients with Afib often experience reduced quality of life and have symptoms such as a rapid pulse, confusion, dizziness, fainting, fatigue and shortness of breath. Afib is a progressive disease and may increase in severity and frequency if left untreated. Those interested in learning more about the reMARQable (nMARQ™ Pulmonary Vein Isolation System for the Treatment of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation) study or speaking with a physician to see whether they or someone they know might be candidates for participating in this clinical trial may contact Centennial Heart Cardiovascular Consultants at 615-515-1900. The nMARQ™ Circular Catheter is approved for investigational device use only and is not available for sale in the U.S.
