The physician who led the first-in-human robotic-assisted neurovascular intervention with Corindus’ CorPath GRX system believes the technology could revolutionize neurovascular intervention by allowing a centralized interventional team to remotely treat patients.
Robocath is planning a year-end market launch of its flagship R-One robotic catheterization system after the preclinical trial of R-One hit all primary endpoints. If the product is CE-marked in December as anticipated, it will be a rival to Corindus Vascular's CorPath, which is currently the only robotic-assisted system in the market for interventional cardiology. Robocath announced the preclinical data at EuroPCR in Paris, being held this week until May 25.
