Hansen Medical to Feature Magellan Robotic System at Society for Vascular Surgery 2015 Annual Meeting

Hansen Medical®, Inc., the global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced it will exhibit its Magellan™ Robotic System at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society for Vascular Surgery, June 18 - 20 at the McCormick Place West in Chicago, Illinois. The company expects that Magellan will be featured during several physician presentations throughout the meeting, covering a broad range of endovascular procedures.

Vascular Surgeons representing four different hospitals will present their experiences with the Magellan Robotic System and Magellan Robotic Catheters in aortic, lower and upper extremity, and venous interventions, as well as complex embolization procedures. Hansen Medical will also host Magellan Robotic System demonstrations at booth #918.

The company anticipates that the following sessions during SVS 2015 will include discussion about intravascular robotics:

Thursday, June 18, 2015:

  • 5:30pm, Interactive Poster Session, Exhibit Hall F1, "Successful Use of Endovascular Robotics in Failed Treatment of Central Venous Stenosis"- Matthew E. Bennett, MD, Alan B. Lumsden, MD, Jean Bismuth, MD, Houston, Texas

Friday, June 19, 2015:

  • 3:30 - 4:00pm, Vascular Live Session, Exhibit Hall F1, "Experiences Building a Magellan™ Intravascular Robotics Program"- Joseph J. Ricotta, MD, Atlanta, Georgia

An Educational Speaker Series in the Hansen Medical Booth #918 will also include the following presentations:

Thursday, June 18, 2015:

  • 12:30 - 12:45pm, Booth 918, "Real World Intravascular Robotics Implementation: The Magellan™ Robotic System in Lower Extremity Interventions" - John Matsuura, MD, Dayton, Ohio
  • 3:30 - 3:45pm, Booth 918, "Stability and Control: Intravascular Robotics in Complex Embolization Procedures"- Patrick Muck, MD, Cincinnati, Ohio

Friday, June 19, 2015:

  • 12:15 - 12:30pm, Booth 918, "First Time Every Time: Enabling Complex Procedures with Robotics and Advanced Imaging"- Alan B. Lumsden, MD, Houston, Texas

"Hansen is excited to return to SVS, which is the largest annual meeting of vascular surgeons in the US, and one of the premier vascular meetings globally. We are pleased to see the number and diversity of presentations about intravascular robotics. The range of topics and speakers reflects the growth in our Magellan user base, and also demonstrates how our physician customers continue to expand their use of robotics in minimally-invasive, endovascular procedures," said Cary Vance, Hansen Medical's President and Chief Executive Officer.

About the Magellan™ Robotic System
Hansen Medical's Magellan Robotic System is intended to be used to facilitate navigation in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices. The Magellan Robotic System is designed to deliver predictability, control and catheter stability to endovascular procedures. Since its commercial introduction in the U.S. and Europe, the Magellan Robotic System has demonstrated its clinical versatility in many cases in a broad variety of peripheral vascular procedures globally. The Magellan Robotic System offers several important features including:

  • Provides predictability, control and catheter stability as a physician navigates a patient's peripheral vasculature and then provides a conduit for manual treatment of vascular disease with standard therapeutic devices.
  • Is designed to enable more predictable procedure times and increased case throughput potentially allowing hospitals to improve utilization within their vascular business line.
  • Employs an open architecture designed to allow for the subsequent use of many therapeutic devices on the market today.
  • Is designed to potentially reduce physician radiation exposure and fatigue by allowing the physician to navigate procedures while seated comfortably at a remote workstation away from the radiation field and without wearing heavy lead as required in conventional endovascular procedures.
  • The Magellan 9Fr and 10Fr Robotic Catheters allow for independent, robotic control of two telescoping catheters (an outer Guide and an inner Leader catheter), as well as robotic manipulation of standard guide wires.
  • The Magellan 6Fr Robotic Catheter allows for independent robotic control of two separate bend sites on a single catheter, as well as robotic manipulation of standard guide wires. This smaller catheter design may be preferred by certain physicians who prefer a smaller diameter vessel access site, or in procedures in smaller vessels.
