Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9907296A1] The method for ablating tissue of a patient's heart comprising, providing a pulsed sonic energy apparatus with an elongated probe member. The probe member contacts the patient's heart tissue, and heart tissue is ablated by bursts of pulsed sonic energy transmitted through the probe member. Also provided is a system for forming a channel in a patient's heart wall, comprising an elongated probe member connected to a source of bursts of pulsed sonic energy. During ablation or channel formation, the energy bursts are delivered in a timed sequence, which may be either dependent or independent of the patient's heart cycle.
