Corindus Vascular Robotics and Leading Interventional Cardiologists to Present Robotic Angioplasty Cases at 25th Annual TCT Meeting

Company will feature its CorPath System during Oct. 30 symposium titled “Optimizing PCI with Robotic Angioplasty” at TCT 2013, Oct. 27 – Nov. 1

Waltham, MA – October 23, 2013Corindus Vascular Robotics, the leader in precision vascular robotics, will showcase its FDA-approved CorPath System at the upcoming Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2013 annual meeting, Oct. 27–Nov. 1 in San Francisco, CA. The CorPath is the first medical device to bring robotic precision and accuracy to coronary angioplasty to help optimize clinical outcomes. Experts from renowned hospitals and healthcare organizations across the country will deliver onsite presentations and answer questions about their clinical experience with robotic-assisted angioplasty and the significant advantages in stent precision and clinical outcomes utilizing the CorPath System.

Physician presentations will be highlighted during, “Optimizing PCI with Robotic Angioplasty,” a breakfast symposium co-sponsored by Philips Healthcare on Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 7:00 a.m. PDT at Moscone North, Lower Level, Room 122 at the Moscone Center.

Moderated by J. Jeffrey Marshall, M.D., FACC, FSCAI, Northeast Georgia Heart Center, and Giora Weisz, M.D., NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, “Optimizing PCI with Robotic Angioplasty” will feature presentations on the advantages offered by robotic-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures, followed by an audience discussion and Q&A on future directions of vascular robotics.

“Robotic assistance in angioplasties has shone a light on the considerable room for improvement in invasive vascular procedures, particularly in terms of stent size selection and precision in optimal placement of stents in PCI procedures,” said Dr. Marshall. “The linkage between the use of robotics during PCIs and improvement in clinical outcomes continues to increase, and the trend stands to gain further support as the interventional cardiology field embraces a future enabling the delivery of better care.”

In addition to the breakfast symposium, Dr. Weisz will also present, “Robotic Percutaneous Cardiovascular Intervention: Current Status and Future Directions” during “25 Years of Interventional Innovation: Novel Therapies and the ’Emerging’ Device Concepts for 2013,” a scientific symposia taking place Monday, Oct. 28.

“We are committed to building clinical data and evidence for robotic angioplasty,” said David Handler, President and CEO of Corindus Vascular Robotics. “Through this symposium, we will illustrate the significant impact robotic angioplasties could have on increasing procedural precision and potentially improving clinical outcomes.”

“Optimizing PCI with Robotic Angioplasty” will feature the following speakers:

  • Optimized PCI: From Gruentzig to CorPath-David R. Holmes, M.D., Mayo Clinic
  • Introduction to Robotic Angioplasty-Ronald P. Caputo, M.D., St. Joseph's Hospital
  • From PRECISE to PRECISION: Evidence-Based Robotics-Giora Weisz, M.D., New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center
  • One Stent Per Lesion Using Precise Measurement: Case 1-Tom Stys, M.D., Sanford Health
  • Complex Coronary Robotic-Enhanced Angioplasty: Case 2 - Theodore L. Schreiber, M.D., Detroit Medical Center

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.

Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The company's CorPath System is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic precision to interventional procedures. During the procedure, the interventional cardiologist sits at a radiation-shielded workstation to advance guide catheters, stents, and guidewires with millimeter-by-millimeter precision. The workstation allows the physician greater control and the freedom from wearing heavy lead protective equipment that causes musculoskeletal injuries. With the CorPath System, Corindus Vascular Robotics brings robotic precision to interventional procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs associated with complications of improper stent placement during manual procedures. Corindus stands behind its product with its unique $1,000 hospital credit "One Stent Program."
