Hansen Medical, Inc., a global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced that it will showcase its Sensei® X Robotic Catheter System with the new Artisan Extend® Catheter at the Heart Rhythm Society's (HRS) 34th Annual Scientific Sessions from May 8-11, 2013 in Denver, CO. The Company will be exhibiting the Sensei X System at Booth 616.
Hansen Medical's Artisan Extend Catheter includes a simplified flush design that can improve physician workflow during complex electrophysiology procedures, and allows for lower manufacturing costs. The Company completed a limited release of the new catheter in January, and it is now in full release in both the U.S. and Europe.
"We are encouraged by our growing EP business, as evidenced by the record procedures and catheter sales we delivered in 2012. We have experienced six consecutive quarters of procedure growth, and look forward to building on this positive momentum at HRS," said Bruce Barclay, President and CEO of Hansen Medical. "Our record EP procedures and the greater than 10,000 clinical cases performed to date are a testament to the continued market adoption and clinical relevance of our Sensei X System and the value that it delivers to patients, physicians, hospitals, and payers. The initial clinical results from our Artisan Extend Catheter have been positive, which is important because the success of this catheter, as well as our Lynx® Ablation Catheter in Europe, are key elements of our EP business growth strategy."
