               The CorPath® Vascular Robotic System is the first FDA cleared medical robotic platform that offers interventional cardiologists precise procedure and stent positioning control during vascular interventions. Offering healthcare robotics gives patients access to innovative technologies coupled with robotic precision. In addition, the development of a comprehensive Vascular Robotic Program can improve radiation 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 vascular 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 and precision in action and understand how vascular 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

September 28, 2017

Our last blog focused on the rising trend towards performing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) transradially, or vascular 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

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 Cath Lab Radiation Safety a Priority

September 12, 2016

The topic of cath lab radiation safety 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.

Earlier this month, the second annual San Diego Cardiovascular Interventions (SDCI) conference was held in La Jolla, CA. The two-day meeting focused on robotics for coronary and peripheral interventions and CHIP, or Complex High-Risk (and Indicated) Patients.


Tips for Building a Successful Vascular Robotic Program

Robotic therapy is changing how procedures are performed in the cath lab. A successful robotics program will not only enable cath lab teams to provide a high level of patient care but can also significantly reduce procedure-related health risks among interventional clinicians working in the cardiac cath lab. However, building a successful program requires a clearly identified team, commitment from the institution, and a focus on clinical training.
