Recap: Innovation and Radiation Awareness at TCT 2014

Last week, another TCT conference came to an end. Thousands of professionals in interventional cardiovascular medicine attended the conference in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. to experience the latest and greatest in clinical research, late-breaking trials and cutting-edge technologies in the industry.

Interventional Cardiology: Few Women Pursue This Gratifying Career

The September/October issue of Cardiology Today’s Interventions features an article by interventional cardiologist and CorPath user, Dr. Cindy Grines of Detroit Medical Center. In her article, she focuses on some of the reasons why many female physicians may choose not to pursue interventional cardiology, including a demanding workload and the threat of radiation exposure, especially during child-bearing years. Dr. Grines notes “for women, the introduction of robotic-assisted technology eliminates the concerns about radiation exposure that can affect pregnancy, and the systems reduce the physical demands of the profession that are obstacles for both men and women.”

Radiation Management, from No Tech to High Tech

Radiation Management, from No Tech to High Tech

This year’s TCT conference included a session on the evolution of cath lab technology and its impact on radiation reduction for patients and staff, which was recently covered by Cardiovascular Business. The speakers note that while a great deal still needs to be done to raise awareness for the issue of radiation safety, new technologies including fixed shielding and robotic systems such as CorPath have the potential to reduce exposure beyond levels seen before, thus creating a safer working environment for the physicians and staff.

Feasibility of Complex Robotic Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Feasibility of Complex Robotic Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

As more PCI procedures are being done with CorPath, physicians are leveraging robotics to assist with more complex procedures. One group that is leading the way is Dr. Ehtisham Mahmud’s team at UC San Diego Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center. His fellows, Drs Arturo Dominguez and John Bahadorani, presented an abstract at TCT 2014 demonstrating the feasibility of performing complex robotic assisted PCI procedures.
