Breakfast symposium and conference activities to highlight capabilities of vascular robotic technology and advancements in automation and remote treatment
WALTHAM, Mass.,--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. (“Corindus” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, announced today it will showcase the capabilities of the CorPath® GRX system at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2019 Conference, to be held September 25-29 in San Francisco, California. CorPath GRX is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) cleared and CE-marked medical device for robotic-assisted vascular interventions. At Corindus’ booth 1327, attendees will be able to gain hands-on experience with CorPath GRX in an advanced simulation. In addition, the next set of automated movements in the technIQ™ Series will be available for demonstration.*
Corindus will also host an educational breakfast symposium titled “Transforming Robotics into an Advanced Clinical Tool Through Automation and Remote Capabilities” on Friday, September 27, from 6:45 to 7:45 a.m. at the Moscone Center, Room 216, Level 2, Moscone South. Corindus’ Chief Medical Officer, J. Aaron Grantham, M.D., of St. Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City, will chair the symposium, which will feature presentations from experts in robotic-assisted coronary intervention. Attendees will also be able to participate in a Q&A session with the faculty. Symposium topics and speakers include:
• “Clinical Review” presented by Ehtisham Mahmud, M.D.
• “Robotics in Clinical Practice: Complex PCI” presented by William Lombardi, M.D.
• “Preparing for a Remote PCI Program Today” presented by Jean Fajadet, M.D.
• “Progress on Automation & Remote” presented by Tejas Patel, M.D.
“My peers in the field have an appreciation for emerging treatment modalities that advance the standard of care, and we are excited to share the latest developments in robotic-assisted procedures with them,” Dr. Grantham said. “As more hospitals and health systems adopt robotic technology, it will be critical for physicians to see CorPath GRX in action and learn the benefits of the device for patients and practitioners through hands-on experience.”
TCT is the world’s largest educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine. For 30 years, TCT has showcased the latest advances in current therapies and clinical research and gathered a range of healthcare professionals with a special interest in the field of interventional and vascular medicine. Registration for the breakfast symposium is available at http://www.corindus.com/tct2019.
“TCT represents the largest educational meeting in interventional cardiovascular medicine and we are pleased that the enthusiasm for vascular robotics continues to build,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corindus. “We look forward to sharing our significant progress with remote and automated technology with the interventional community, as we envision these enhancing the future of patient care,” added Toland.
