RoboSummit 2018: Building a Community of Vascular Robotics Users

By Corindus Staff
May 31, 2018

              May 17-19, 2018, Corindus held the first annual RoboSummit, bringing CorPath users from across the globe together in Boston, MA for a multi-day program to discuss their robotic programs and learn from their peers. Hosted by Corindus Chief Medical Officer, Dr. J. Aaron Grantham, robotics users were able to share their challenging cases, present tips and tricks for utilizing robotics in complex cases, and hear the perspective of cath lab tech super users on how to train bedside users and build a successful robotic program.

Corindus Advanced User Training

By Corindus Staff
December 21, 2017

               The CorPath® Vascular Robotic System is the first FDA cleared robotic platform that offers interventional cardiologists precise procedure and stent control during vascular interventions. Offering robotics gives patients access to innovative technologies coupled with robotic precision. In addition, the development of a comprehensive Vascular Robotic Program can improve safety to the physicians and staff who spend their lives devoted to caring for others.

 

               In order to successfully implement a comprehensive Vascular Robotic Program, it is critical for bedside staff, which may include both fellows and allied health professionals, to be willing to learn new technologies and commit to investing the time and effort needed to master new skills.  The Corindus team offers Advanced User Training (AUT) courses to continue educating cath lab staff to help build and advance their robotic skills with CorPath GRX.  Our courses are a full day of hands-on learning held throughout the year, targeting Technologists, RCIS, RN, CVIT, CIT and others in the cath lab.

Dr. Paul Campbell showcases the applicability of CorPath GRX in complex multi-vessel PCI via left radial access. See the benefits of guide catheter control in action and understand how robotics can enable increased utilization of left radial to benefit patients with previous CABG, right subclavian artery tortuosity and for patients that are right hand dominant.

The Role of Robotics in Left Transradial PCI

By Corindus Staff
September 28, 2017

Our last blog focused on the rising trend towards performing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) transradially, or catheterization via wrist access, in the United States. As medical professionals continue looking for ways to improve patient care, the adoption of transradial access (TRA) grows because of the well-documented patient benefits. There is significant evidence that TRA offers clinical benefits for patients, including fewer major bleeding and vascular complications, reduced incidence of other adverse events and faster discharge1.

The Role of Robotics in Transradial Access PCI

By Corindus Staff
June 05, 2017

For many years, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was performed almost exclusively via transfemoral (groin) access. Over the years, there has been a significant trend towards transradial (wrist) access. Transradial access (TRA) is considered the standard in many parts of the world but in the United States, adoption has been slower. That said, the percentage of procedures that are performed radially in the US has increased steadily over the last decade, reaching approximately 30% in current practice.

Making Radiation Safety a Priority in the Cath Lab

By Corindus Staff
September 12, 2016

The topic of radiation safety in the cath lab has been on the rise in recent years. In 2015 alone, there were 42 publications related to the occupational hazards of working with interventional fluoroscopy, an amount double that of the year prior. Some risks have been widely known for a while including radiation-induced cancer, cataracts, and orthopedic strain from heavy lead protective equipment. Others have been uncovered only more recently including accelerated vascular aging, cognitive impairment, hypertension, and left-sided brain tumors.
