Siemens and Biosense Webster announce AcuNav deal

20th March 2006

Siemens Medical Solutions and Biosense Webster, a member of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, have announced an agreement regarding the distribution of Siemens’ Acuson AcuNav ultrasound catheters.

The deal sees Biosense Webster gain exclusive worldwide distribution rights for the catheters to electrophysiologists.

“We are excited about this alliance between these two companies ? Biosense Webster’s expertise in the field of electrophysiology and Siemens’ leadership in ultrasound is an ideal combination to help develop further technologies,” said Dr Vivek Y Reddy of the Mass General Hospital in Boston.

The AcuNav catheters provide ultrasound imaging of the heart, including visualisation of blood flow and other catheters. According to the companies involved, the technology is the world-leading cardiac imaging catheter.

The Siemens-Biosense Webster deal includes a co-operation development for future technologies, which it is hoped will further enhance the world of electrophysiology.

Siemens’ AcuNav ultrasound catheters were first approved for marketing in 1999.
