what is robotic-assisted pci?
The Benefits of Precision Vascular Robotics

Today, many procedures that were once highly invasive are now being performed via minimally invasive techniques, with the added benefit of robotic precision and radiation protection.

Manual vs. Robotic-Assisted PCI

Since the introduction of PCI 40 years ago, there has been an astonishing amount of advancement in the technology and devices used in the procedure, however the way the procedure is performed has remained virtually unchanged. Now, robotics has the potential to overcome some of the current limitations of the traditional manual approach to PCI.

CorPath: The World’s 1st Robotic-Assisted PCI Platform

The CorPath System is the first FDA cleared robotic platform designed for interventional cardiologists. During a CorPath Robotic-assisted PCI procedure, physicians sit in a radiation-shielded workstation and use a set of joysticks and touchscreen controls that translate the physician’s movements into device control. Robotic-assisted PCI enables precise measurement of anatomy and device positioning with the added benefit of radiation protection for the physician and the potential to reduce radiation exposure for staff and patients.
