HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pulse Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLSE), a company leveraging its novel and proprietary nanosecond pulsed field ablation (nsPFA™) technology for electrophysiology and the treatment of atrial fibrillation, today announced its technology will be highlighted in a poster presentation at the 28th Annual International AF Symposium meeting in Boston February 2–4.
The poster highlights the integration of Pulse Bioscience’s nsPFA System with CardioNXT’s iMAP 3-D mapping and navigation system. The preclinical study demonstrated the integrated system’s ability to navigate the catheter for accurate ablation and to create pre and post-ablation voltage maps.
“We are excited to announce our work and collaborative efforts with CardioNXT and these highly respected physicians to develop a new and exciting modality for cardiac ablation and the treatment of arrhythmias,” said Kevin Danahy, CEO and President of Pulse Biosciences. “Although it’s still in the early innings, we are pleased with the preclinical data that suggests we’ve made encouraging progress with our new proprietary circumferential nsPFA catheter system. This offering has the potential to improve patient outcomes by combining the latest technologies in pulsed field ablation and 3D mapping and navigation.”

About Pulsed Field Ablation
Pulsed field ablation is an exciting new modality for ablating tissue and in particular cardiac tissue for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Current treatment options, including existing PFA systems, utilize pulse durations in the microseconds, stimulating skeletal muscle resulting in patient spasm. As such, deeper sedation and paralytics may be needed during these procedures. To combat this dynamic Pulse Biosciences developed the nsPFA System utilizing pulse durations in the nanosecond range.

All statements in this press release that are not historical are forward-looking statements, including, among other things, statements relating to Pulse Biosciences’ expectations concerning its collaboration with CardioNXT, such as whether an integrated product using a mapping catheter and Pulse Biosciences’ nsPFA System can accurately ablate cardiac cells and create post-ablation voltage maps, statements concerning customer adoption and future use of the CellFX System to address a range of conditions such as atrial fibrillation, statements relating to the effectiveness of the Company’s nsPFA technology and the CellFX System to non-thermally clear cells while sparing adjacent non-cellular tissue, and Pulse Biosciences’ expectations, whether stated or implied, regarding whether the Company’s nsPFA technology will become a disruptive treatment option for treating cardiac arrhythmias and whether future clinical studies will show the CellFX System is safe and effective to treat atrial fibrillation or any other medical condition, and other future events. These statements are not historical facts but rather are based on Pulse Biosciences’ current expectations, estimates, and projections regarding Pulse Biosciences’ business, operations and other similar or related factors. Words such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “anticipate,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “believes,” “estimates,” and other similar or related expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and assumptions that are difficult or impossible to predict and, in some cases, beyond Pulse Biosciences’ control. Actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including those described in Pulse Biosciences’ filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
