Atrial fibrillation is becoming common among individuals due to the various factors such as hypertension, high alcohol intake, rising number of people with common diseases such as diabetes and obesity. However, with the growth in atrial fibrillation, the procedures and devices providing diagnoses and treatment are also increasing. Technologically advanced procedures are being adopted by the hospitals and clinics to treat atrial fibrillation. Meanwhile, favorable regulatory steps by the government in various countries is also leading to the rise in adoption of advanced procedures for diagnoses and treatment of atrial fibrillation.

The emergence of new technologies is leading towards high-resolution image and mapping system that can be used to identify complexity across the entire atrial chamber. Similarly, a combination of laser and video technology is also resulting in the high success rate in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Increasing use of less invasive treatments is resulting in the manufacturers coming up with the new devices for diagnoses and treatment of atrial fibrillation. Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive therapy gaining popularity across the countries. With the quick adoption of catheter ablation, manufacturers are also coming up with new devices that are smart and able to provide treatment in an effective and safer way. Key market players have already launched advanced atrial fibrillation devices in Europe, and are now preparing to launch those devices in the U.S. based on the adoption in Europe.
