Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. (NYSE American:CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, announced today that it will be participating in the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2017 Conference to be held October 29 – November 2 in Denver, CO. Robotic-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) will be featured throughout the conference, including in the exhibit hall, presentations, and during a breakfast symposium.
TCT attendees are invited to register for the educational breakfast symposium entitled “Optimizing Care with CorPath GRX Robotics and Radial Access” sponsored by Corindus on Tuesday, October 31 from 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. The symposium, chaired by Sunil V. Rao, M.D., FSCAI of Duke University Medical Center and featuring faculty from leading cardiovascular institutions, will focus on the benefits of radial access combined with robotic assistance for PCI.
Dr. Rao stated, “I am pleased to chair this program that brings together an esteemed faculty of robotic interventionalists with experience building successful robotic programs. I look forward to discussing the impact of integrating robotics with a radial first approach to benefit patients, operators, and hospitals.”
The symposium will feature the following topics:
- “Incorporating Robotics & Radial into Current Practice” with Sunil V. Rao, M.D.
- “Complex Radial Robotic PCI: A Taped Case” with Paul T. Campbell, M.D.
- “The Economic Argument for Radial Access” with Ian Gilchrist, M.D.
- “Teaching Robotics to Interventionalists and Fellows” with Manish Parikh, M.D.
- “Next Generation Robotics in Action: The WakeMed Experience” with Frances Wood, M.D.
Space for the breakfast symposium is limited; registration is available at www.tctconference.com/satelliteprograms.
During the conference, there will be numerous abstracts and presentations on robotic-assisted PCI including a taped case presentation entitled “Left Trans-Radial Robotic PCI of Obtuse Marginal” presented by Paul T. Campbell, M.D. on Monday, October 30 at 10:30 a.m.
The CorPath GRX System will also be on display in Corindus’ Booth 3021. To schedule a hands-on demonstration of robotic-assisted PCI with an advanced simulator, please visit www.corindus.com/TCT2017.
