  • Cause
    The version 11 software is unable to detect a catheter fault that occurs due to either an intermittent resistive connection or a thermocouple short proximal to an electrode. when this fault is not effectively detected the displayed temperature will be lower than the actual tissue temperature. if the actual tissue temperature becomes excessive it may result in coagulum and/or char formation during an ablation procedure. formation of coagulum/char is considered a hazardous situation which could lead to patient harm (thrombo-embolic complications).
