Precision vascular robotics developer, Corindus Vascular Robotics has announced that it will make a presentation on the CorPath 200 System at the Cardiovascular Research Technologies (CRT2012) yearly meeting to be held in Washington on February 7, 2012.
On behalf of the company, Giora Weisz who is M.D Director of Clinical Cardiovascular Research at Centre for International Vascular Therapy at the Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Medical Centre and who is also the Associate Professor of medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons will make the presentation at the conference. This presentation is part of the CorPath PRECISE Trial. The company will also make live demonstrations of the CorPath 200 System at the annual event.
The CorPath 200 System enables the controlled placement of stent balloons and catheters and coronary guidewires from the convenience of an interventional cockpit that has been ergonomically optimised. The cockpit has been lined with lead in order to protect the operator from exposure to radiation. The position of the cockpit also reduces strain on the neck and back of the operator as it allows for better viewing through the monitors. Dr. Weisz has stated that he is able to perform critical coronary interventions in a more accurate manner without straining his neck and back. According to Dr. Weisz, this new vascular robotic system has the potential to revolutionise the way in which healthcare is provided.
