EpiEP, Inc. is a medical device company that has developed an FDA cleared and CE marked epicardial access system, EpiAccess™. This system engages a patent protected pressure-guided needle that is designed to alert physicians of needle tip location during epicardial access procedures.

Entering the pericardial space with a minimally invasive technique is considered the “final frontier” for electrophysiology procedures. EpiEP has devoted itself to developing a specialized instrument that will facilitate an epicardial approach for patients who will benefit from minimally invasive procedures on the surface of the heart.
