The issued US Patents (US Patents 8,241,273; 8,211,011; 8,235,990; and 8,267,951) specifically cover multidisciplinary approaches in which epicardial and endocardial cardiac ablation synergistically complete linear lesions, as well as devices and methods that enable creating consistent linear lesions under direct visualization without any chest incisions.
