Description Study Title: Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics DiamondTemp TempeRAture-Controlled and Contact Sensing RF Ablation Clinical Trial for Atrial Fibrillation: TRAC-AF Sponsor: Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics 2880 Lakeside Drive Suite 250 Santa Clara, CA 95054 Protocol No: DTAF-CZ01 Product: Cardiac Ablation Catheter and RF Generator/Pump System Investigational Device: DiamondTemp System (Inclusive of the DiamondTemp Ablation Catheter, DiamondTemp Catheter-to-RFG Cable, DiamondTemp GenConnect Cable, DiamondTemp RF Generator, DiamondTemp Irrigation Pump and DiamondTemp Irrigation Tubing) PROTOCOL SUMMARY Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics DiamondTemp TempeRAture-Controlled and Contact Sensing RF Ablation Clinical Trial for Atrial Fibrillation: TRAC-AF Study Objective: The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety and performance effectiveness of the DiamondTemp System for the treatment of drug refractory, recurrent, symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). Investigational Device: The investigational device in this clinical study is the DiamondTemp System inclusive of - DiamondTemp Catheter (UPN: CZDT100S, CZDT100L) - DiamondTemp Catheter-to RFG Cable (UPN: CZDC100) - DiamondTemp GenConnect Cable (UPN: CZDTGC100) - DiamondTemp RF Generator (UPN:CZDTG100) - DiamondTemp Irrigation Pump (UPN: CZDP100) - DiamondTemp Irrigation Tubing Set (UPN: CZDTS100) System Accessories: - Dispersive Indifferent Patch (DIP) electrodes - Power Cord - EGM Cable (not supplied) - St. Jude Maestro GenConnect (not supplied) The investigational device can be used with commonly available EP Recording System, Cardiac Stimulator and the ST. Jude EnSite™ Velocity™ Cardiac Mapping System. There are no control devices in this study. Study Design/Planned Number of Subjects/Number of Centers This study is a prospective, single center, single arm study. A maximum of 50 subjects will be enrolled in the study to include a maximum of 5 roll-in subjects in one investigational center in the Czech Republic. Primary Endpoints The primary endpoint events for this trial as follows are to assess the safety and performance effectiveness of the DiamondTemp System for the treatment of drug refractory, recurrent, symptomatic PAF. - Primary Safety Endpoint: The safety of the DiamondTemp System will be assessed by evaluating the nature and frequency of serious adverse events (SAE) and serious adverse device effects (SADE) during the time of the ablation procedure and within 7 days afterwards. - Primary Effectiveness Endpoint: The effectiveness of the DiamondTemp System will be evaluated post-ablation with demonstration of acute procedural success defined as isolation of clinically relevant pulmonary veins by demonstration of block or isolation of signals confirmed after delivery of the ablation treatment. Depending on EP lab protocol, one method will be chosen. Secondary Endpoints The following secondary endpoint will be evaluated to support the results of the primary endpoints: • Secondary Safety Endpoint: The chronic safety of the DiamondTemp System will be assessed by evaluating the nature and frequency of adverse events (AE) and adverse device effects (ADE) at 30 days, 90 days, 6 months and 12 months post-procedure. Study Duration The duration of the study is expected to last approximately 4 months from the first enrollment to final report for assessment of endpoints. An additional 12 months to the study closeout after the last follow-up. Key Inclusion Criteria - Suitable candidate for intra-cardiac mapping for arrhythmias - History of recurrent symptomatic PAF WITH ≥2 episodes reported within the 365 days (12) months prior to enrollment - At least 1 episode of atrial fibrillation (AF) documented by Holter monitor, rhythm strip, trans-telephonic monitor (TTM), or 12-lead ECG prior to enrollment - Refractory to at least one Class I-IV anti-arrhythmic drug (AAD) - Eighteen (18) years of age or above - Competent and willing to provide written informed consent to participate in the study and agree to comply with the follow-up visits and evaluation Key Exclusion Criteria - Previous ablation procedure in the left atrium - Intracardiac thrombus, tumor or other abnormality that precludes catheter introduction and placement - Known severe cerebrovascular disease or history of cerebrovascular event (within 1 month) - Cardiac surgery within the past two months. - Short life expectancy (< 1 yr.) due to other illnesses, such as cancer or pulmonary, hepatic, or renal disease - Uncontrolled congestive heart failure (NYHA Class III or IV) - Unstable angina or acute myocardial infarction within the past three months - Bleeding, clotting disorders, or known thrombosis - Heart valve replacement - Mitral clip (Evalve) - Unable or unwilling to take anti-coagulants Ablation Procedure The ablation procedure will consist of documentation of pre-ablation pulmonary vein (PV) potentials, conducting PV isolation using the DiamondTemp System, providing documentation of PV entrance block. Investigator can opt to perform other ablations if any non- PV foci are involved in atrial arrhythmia. Follow-up Schedule - Screening visit any time during six (6) months before ablation procedure - Ablation Procedure (Day 0, all follow-ups post ablation are based on this date) - Discharge (5-72 hours) - 7-Day Phone Check (7 + 3 days) - 1-Month Follow-up (30 + 5 days) - Repeat Mapping Procedure - Repeat Ablation Procedure, if necessary - 3-Month Follow-up (90 + 10 days) - 6-Month Follow-up (180 + 30 days) - 12-Month Follow-up (365 + 30 days) - Additional Follow-up visits (as determined necessary) The study will be considered complete for the purpose of reporting results with regards to the primary endpoints after all subjects have completed the 7-Day follow-up. A final study closeout report will be created after the last 12-month follow-up visit.
