RAPID Study Shows Safety and Feasibility of Robotics for Peripheral Vascular Intervention
The findings of the single-center RAPID (Robotic-Assisted Peripheral Intervention for peripheral arterial Disease) trial were recently published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions. All robotic-assisted peripheral vascular interventions were safe and technically successful with no device-related adverse events in the peri-procedural period. In addition, all operators achieved successful cannulation of the target vessel with less than 50% residual stenosis and no unplanned switching to manual intervention.
Clinical Case Update: Provisional Bifurcation Stenting with Robotic PCI
The use of robotic PCI, during an extremely complex case of bifurcation stenting using the right radial approach, is described by Dr. Paul Campbell in this comprehensive clinical case update, published by the Journal of Invasive Cardiology. The case demonstrates the benefits of robotic PCI, especially the precision, control, and safety of the CorPath System in the treatment of complex lesions.
Making Radiation Safety a Priority in the Cath Lab
The topic of radiation safety in the cath lab 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. There is a tremendous opportunity for cath lab teams to develop radiation safety initiatives that extend to everyone in the cath lab and we have partnered with several hospitals to do just that.
