Their annual leadership awards program is the most prestigious tech award program in the state of Massachusetts.
"We are honored to award Corindus with the 2013 Innovative Technology of the Year for Robotics," said Tom Hopcroft, President and CEO of MassTLC. "Corindus' leadership is a shining example of what it takes to keep the Commonwealth's tech sector growing and thriving. It's our pleasure to recognize and encourage such excellence. Congratulations to Corindus and the strong team behind their success." To read the full press release click here.

PRECISION Registry Launched: Extensive Study of Robotic Angioplasty Safety and Effectiveness in Routine Clinical Practice

On September 16th, we announced the launch of the PRECISION Registry, an ongoing study aimed at collecting data on the patterns of use, safety and effectiveness in the delivery and manipulation of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) devices. Dr. Giora Weisz, Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, will lead the study. "Although manual PCI procedures are a widely accepted practice, I believe there is an opportunity for improvements to be made in stent size selection and precision movements that can only be offered with robotic assistance," said Dr. Weisz.

SCAI TRIP

Corindus to Attend SCAI Transradial Interventional Program in Chicago

Corindus will be exhibiting in this year's SCAI TRIP Series with the first session coming up on Saturday October 12th in Chicago. The course aims to build upon the basics taught during previous TRIP programs, focusing on advanced techniques and best practices. According to the SCAI website, this series is designed for both past TRIP attendees as well as those who’ve not previously attended. CorPath will also be at the December 14th session in Phoenix, AZ.

Upcoming Webinar: Precision Matters – Optimizing PCI Through Robotics

"Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology" will be hosting a webinar focused on the ways in which new technology such as robotic-assistance can serve to optimize PCI. This talk, which will be given by Dr. J. Jeffrey Marshall, Medical Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at NGMC, will explain the value of robotic assistance in the cath lab which includes the potential to reduce stent utilization, minimize longitudinal geographic miss, and reduce radiation to the physician.

CorPath Robotic Angioplasty Gets Patient Back to Karaoke

57-year-old Edward R. of Bellingham, Mass. was first diagnosed with coronary artery disease in 1998. Edward went several years without anything bothersome when in April 2011, Edward started experiencing chest pains again and immediately drove to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Boston, MA. During his consultation, Dr. Lawrence Garcia explained that Edward would be undergoing CorPath Robotic Angioplasty to relieve the blockage in his heart. "In my previous angioplasties, I could actually feel the physician inserting the stent," said Edward. "With the robotic-assisted angioplasty, I could not feel anything." Edward’s recovery time was minimal. In fact, he is back to spending time with his family and going on daily walks with his dog. He was also back to his favorite karaoke hot spots, singing tunes from the 60s and 70s.
