Hansen Medical, a global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced it will exhibit its Magellan™ Robotic System at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference, from October 22-26 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, FL. The Company will be conducting product demonstrations and exhibiting the Magellan Robotic System at Booth 895.
Additionally, Dr. Barry Katzen, founder and Medical Director of Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute (Baptist Hospital of Miami) is scheduled to feature the Magellan System in a live aortic endograft case at the conference on Wednesday, October 24 at 1:00 PM ET.
"We are pleased that our Magellan Robotic System will be further highlighted at TCT, which is the world's largest educational meeting focused on interventional vascular procedures," said Bruce Barclay, president and CEO of Hansen Medical. "Moreover, the live case scheduled to be performed by Dr. Katzen will provide an additional opportunity for those in the cardiovascular community to observe how the Magellan System can enhance endovascular procedures. Our strong presence at TCT combined with our recent and upcoming showings at the Vascular InterVentional Advances (VIVA) Conference and the 39th Annual Symposium on Vascular and Endovascular Issues (VEITHsymposium™), respectively, are critical opportunities for Hansen Medical to continue generating momentum around the significant benefits of our technology."
About the Magellan™ Robotic System
Hansen Medical's Magellan Robotic System is based upon the flexible robotic technology incorporated in the Sensei-X® Robotic Catheter System currently sold in the U.S. and Europe, which has been used in more than 8,000 patients, but includes a number of key enhancements. In particular, the Magellan Robotic System:
- Provides solid catheter stability for placement of therapeutic devices.
- Is designed to enable predictable procedure times and increased case throughput.
- Allows for independent, individual robotic control of the distal tips of both the outer sheath and the inner leader catheter, as well as robotic manipulation of standard guidewires.
- Is designed to allow for sufficient extension inside the body to access hard to reach peripheral anatomy.
- Preserves the open architecture featured in the Sensei System to allow for the subsequent use of many 6F therapeutic devices on the market today.
- Is designed to potentially reduce physician radiation exposure and fatigue by employing a remote physician workstation.
