Michael Mangrum at University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, Va. The first U.S. case was performed on January 31 as part of an amended protocol of the company’s TOCCASTAR investigational device exemption (IDE) clinical study of the TactiCath (called the "TOCCASTAR Supplemental Clinical Study"). The supplemental study’s protocol is identical to that of original TOCCASTAR study, with the exception that the patients treated with the newer device will not be randomized.
