The newest installations (4th generation) are getting used more frequently because they are more intuitive with short learning curve. The last PR was way more important as it relates to the physical burden of long procedures and career longevity. It takes a huge amount of training/practice and years for EPs to get really good at complex ablations. If they are doing it manually, their career is already 2/3 of the way to the end of their career based upon the age and experience of the current crop of elite experts. Stock finally pulling back as expected. “On a personal note, the convenience and ease of use associated with the Niobe system alleviates much of the physical burden related to these complex procedures, enabling me to continue practicing electrophysiology longer than expected,” said Dr. Yuan, who performed his first procedure using the Niobe system in late 2011 and has since completed more than 300 cases.
