What is Kapsus?
Kapsus catheter is an enabling technology that allows a safe, accurate, and controlled transseptal puncture from the Right Atrium to provide Left Atrial access. This device is ideal for interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists seeking peace of mind during transseptal puncture procedures.

How does it work?

The device is introduced from the venous side and advanced until its distal tip is positioned in the superior vena cava. The housing is then deployed, anchoring the device in a temporary position. Once the septum is visualized, the physician can control the delivery system to be perpendicular to the fossa ovalis and perform the puncture.

Transseptal Puncture Background
Transseptal puncture is a half-century-old procedure performed to gain access to the Left Atrium by puncturing the Fossa Ovalis. Current transseptal puncture devices use a needle that is drawn over the anatomy of the heart until the Fossa Ovalis is located through tactile feedback.
