Two Live EVAR Cases Performed Using Magellan Robotic System Broadcasted at 25th ISET

Hansen Medical, Inc., a global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced that its Magellan™ Robotic System was utilized in two successful live endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) cases broadcast at the 25th Annual International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET), on January 22nd at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel in Miami, FL.

Both live cases were performed by Dr. Barry Katzen, founder and Medical Director of the Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute (Baptist Hospital of Miami), and a course director at ISET.

"We are very pleased to have our Magellan System featured in two live cases at this prominent meeting for interventional radiologists, cardiologists and endovascular surgeons," said Bruce Barclay, president and CEO of Hansen Medical. "Live cases such as these, and the two performed by Dr. Katzen as part of the TCT conference last October, help demonstrate the real-world medical utility of our robotic system, and how it can enhance endovascular procedures."

"Today's cases went extremely well," said Dr. Katzen. "They showed that robotic catheters can play a valuable role in vascular procedures, and showed the promise of the technology for future clinical applications."

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 nearly 10,000 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.
