With the addition of the CorPath® System by Corindus, the interventional cardiologists at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano have a new, powerful tool to perform angioplasties.
The CorPath System is the first robotic-assisted system designed to improve precision during an angioplasty or PCI (percutaneous coronary interventions) procedure. The CorPath System is the only robotic-assisted PCI system cleared by the FDA.
Things to keep in mind:
The CorPath System empowers your interventional cardiologist with precise, robotic-assisted control of coronary guide wires and balloon/stent catheters while performing angioplasty.
The robotic-assisted system consists of two components:
When you undergo a CorPath Robotic Angioplasty, your interventional cardiologist can measure and control the stent with sub-millimeter precision. Because of the enhanced visualization offered to your doctor, you potentially receive less contrast dye, which can help avoid some complications. In addition, your doctor is safer and more comfortable during the procedure.
All interventional cardiologists want to be precise when placing guide wires and balloon/stents catheters. The CorPath System provides them with this robotic precision through the meticulous movements of the bedside unit and increased visualization from the monitors and robotic-assisted control from the Interventional Cockpit.
The reduction in radiation exposure may reduce the occupational health risks your doctor faces and aids your doctor in performing procedures with better efficiency.
