Corindus Vascular Robotics announced today that it will sponsor a dinner event during the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2018 Scientific Sessions at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California. Vascular robotics will be featured throughout the conference in the exhibit hall, presentations, and during the symposium.

“Optimizing Care with CorPath GRX: Hot Topics in Robotic Interventions” will take place on Thursday, April 26, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. PST in room Harbor G. The symposium, chaired by Douglas Drachman, M.D. of Massachusetts General Hospital, will feature esteemed faculty Paul Campbell, M.D. of Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast, William Lombardi, M.D. of the University of Washington, and Sunil Rao, M.D. of Duke University Medical Center. Presentations will highlight Rotate on Retract (RoR), the first smart procedural automation in the technIQ™ Series designed for the CorPath GRX platform. RoR allows the operator to quickly navigate to a targeted lesion by automatically rotating the guidewire upon joystick retraction, redirecting the tip for the next advancement.

Dr. Paul Campbell, Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast, stated, “Rotate on Retract is proving to be a very useful and intuitive tool. During my first cases with RoR enabled, the predictable wire rotations assisted in navigating to difficult lesions and showed the potential to reduce procedure time. I look forward to sharing my clinical experience using RoR with my peers.”

Space for the symposium is limited. For more information and to register for the symposium, please visit
