CorPath 200 Robotic System for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions Green Light

CorPath 200 Robotic System for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions Green Lighted in U.S.

The CorPath® 200 System

The CorPath 200 System puts you in command of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. The system provides procedure control from an interventional cockpit, allowing precise, robotic-assisted placement of coronary guidewires and stent/balloon catheters.

The physician operates in a comfortable environment, completely focused on patient physiology. The ergonomically optimized cockpit enhances visualization, minimizes fatigue, and protects the operator against exposure to radiation and other occupational hazards such as back strain.

A safer, more ergonomic environment that gives you more procedure control. That’s the CorPath 200 System.

Corindus Vascular Robotics (Natick, MA) won FDA clearance for its CorPath 200 System for performing robotic assisted coronary angioplasties.

CorPath 2001 CorPath 200 Robotic System for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions Green Lighted in U.S.Traditionally, clinicians are exposed to stray X-ray radiation from the C-arm as they guide instruments through a patient’s vasculature. The CorPath system allows the physician to work away from the patient by controlling instruments via a cool looking interface that seems like it’s out of a NASA program. Not only is the physician kept safely away from repeated radiation exposure, but patients may benefit if the robot improves surgeons’ dexterity and ability to control the instruments.

Precise robotic movement and device fixation

Precise, robotic-assisted control allows placement of guidewire and catheter and stable device deployment

Fixates and holds devices at all times

Open architecture system allows users to select their own preferred guidewire, balloon and stent

Enhanced visualization and measurement capability

Improves visualization of angiography

Measurement capability within seconds

Radiation protection

Interventional lead-lined cockpit

Radiation protection without the use of heavy lead apparel

Optimized ergonomics

Reduces fatigue enabling better concentration and focus

Comfortable seating position minimizes head, neck, and back strain due standing while wearing a lead apronIt is quite unfortunate that in the modern cath lab, clinicians are constantly exposed to unneeded radiation. Can’t all the navigation and manipulation of remote objects in a complex vasculature be done via a robotic interface so as to move clinicians away from the X-ray tube and maybe even improve their ability and precision? Well, the FDA has just given clearance to Corindus (Natick, MA), a vascular robotics company, to perform a clinical trial to test the safety and effectiveness of its CorPath 200 System.

vc3dasdfs CorPath 200 Robotic Guidewire and Balloon/Stent Placement System Going to Trial

Precise, robotic-assisted control allows placement of guidewire and catheter and stable device deployment

Fixates and holds devices at all times, so the physician can control contrast injection while manipulating the guidewire

Open architecture system allows users to select their own preferred guidewire and balloon/stent devices

Improves visualization of angiography through close proximity of monitors

Measurement capability within seconds

Reduces fatigue enabling better concentration and focus for longer periods of time

Comfortable seating position minimizes head, neck, and back pain due standing while wearing a lead apron

Interventional lead-lined cockpit offers a reduced radiation zone for the physician to perform the procedure

Improved control of contrast injection and visualization of angiography could potentially reduce the volume of contrast media and radiation dose for the patient
