Fujifilm launches septal myectomy aid

Fujifilm Healthcare Americas has launched its OPIE Transducer, an on-pump intracardiac echocardiography transducer for aiding septal myectomy procedures.

OPIE is a possible alternative to using transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) to view septal thickness before septal myectomy. With OPIE, a thin transducer is passed into the heart; images of the patient’s septal thickness can be seen in real-time, according to Fujifilm. The company also noted a study featuring the OPIE Transducer that highlights how the system provides established imaging to aid in septal myectomy procedures compared with TEE and transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE).

The OPIE transducer is compatible with Fujifilm’s premium ultrasound system, the ARIETTA Precision, according to the company.
