New Documentary Shows How Occupational Back Injuries Risk Career of Noted Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Vijay Iyer

We recently announced the debut of a new documentary entitled "Robotics Reducing the Burden of a Life in the Cath Lab," to highlight the impact that protective lead apparel has on physicians practicing in catheterization labs and how robotics are employed to help solve these problems. The documentary features noted interventional cardiologist Dr. Vijay S. Iyer, who has experienced multiple spinal disc herniations and has had four surgeries as a result of continual stresses on his musculoskeletal system from wearing traditional heavy, lead-lined apparel in the cath lab. Dr. Iyer credits the CorPath® System with providing an alternative solution to constantly wearing heavy lead apparel to protect him from radiation.

Robotics in the Cath Lab

Revolutionizing Complex PCIs with Robotics in the Cath Lab

As the number of physicians with access to robotically assisted vascular procedures has increased so has the complexity of the cases that they have successfully completed. We see changes in the expectations of the interventional community about radiation safety practices in the cath lab, robotic precision in manipulating wires and devices and, most recently, the value of robotic technology in complex PCIs. Since its clearance for PCI, robotic technology has been used successfully in cases that include tripe vessel disease with a total occlusion, double balloon PTCA, and high-risk PCI requiring ventricular assist.
