Both Boston Scientific and Medtronic [Free Report on MDT][1] have been looking to new products to grow their top- and bottom-lines, and both have recently been involved with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation affects around 15 million people globally, and can cause serious health problems such as strokes and heart failure.

In the case of Boston Scientific, the company newly announced that the first patient has been treated in its ZERO AF clinical trial. The results of the trial are anticipated to be used to back up an FDA regulatory submission for a paroxysmal atrial fibrillation indication.

Medtronic has also been busy, recently stating that the FDA has cleared the FlexCath Advance (TM) Steerable Sheath, an improvement to the Arctic Front Advance (TM) Cryoballon System. The new sheath will make it easier to reach inferior veins of the heart when delivering and positioning the cryoballoon catheter in the left atrium to treat paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.
