St. Jude Medical, Inc. (NYSE:STJ), a global medical device company, today announced the launch of its ViewMate(TM) Z Intracardiac Ultrasound System and ViewFlex(TM) Plus Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE) Catheter.

The ViewMate Z System is designed for real-time image guidance and visualization of the cardiac anatomy. The system is able to deliver fast, high-fidelity images that help direct diagnosis or therapy during complex electrophysiology procedures. The system is compatible with the new ViewFlex(TM) Plus ICE Catheter, which offers improved one-handed control, steering angles up to 120° and enhanced tip stability. The ViewMate Z System is designed to allow clinicians to better visualize a patient's cardiac anatomy and the effects of treatment in real-time.

One of the industry's smallest cart-based systems, the ViewMate Z System offers greater portability and optimizes vital lab space while reducing obstructions in a clinician's workflow. The system was designed, developed and provided through St. Jude Medical's development and distribution agreement with ZONARE Medical Systems, a leading provider of high-end ultrasound systems.
