Apama Medical, founded in 2009 by serial entrepreneur Amr Salahieh, is a medical device company committed to improving patient outcomes by developing a novel catheter ablation system for the underpenetrated and rapidly growing atrial fibrillation (AF) market. Recognizing the need for a more effective means of treating AF.
Apama developed a unique multipoint RF balloon catheter system designed to improve procedural efficiency and versatility, addressing fundamental obstacles to the more widespread adoption of atrial ablation therapy. AF remains the most common clinically significant cardiac arrhythmia affecting an estimated 12.9 million patients globally.
Apama was acquired by Boston Scientific in 2017.
