Corindus CorPath GRX System Successfully Used in Live Complex Robotic-Assisted Coronary Intervention at EuroPCR 2019

    Reading Time: 4 minutes

    Case broadcast live to thousands of EuroPCR attendees from Clinique
    Pasteur in France

    WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Corindus
    Vascular Robotics, Inc.
    (“Corindus” or the “Company”) (NYSE
    American: CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics,
    announced today its CorPath® GRX System was successfully used to perform
    a live complex robotic-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
    at the EuroPCR
    Conference in Paris, France on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

    Interventional Cardiologist, PCR Vice-Chairman, and Course Director of
    EuroPCR, Dr. Jean Fajadet performed the procedure from Clinique
    in Toulouse, France. It was broadcast live to EuroPCR
    attendees, marking the first time a robotic procedure using CorPath GRX
    was performed and broadcast live in Europe. Dr. Fajadet is the
    co-director of the interventional cardiology unit at Clinique Pasteur,
    which became the first site in Europe to adopt the Company’s most
    advanced vascular robotic technology when it installed the CorPath GRX
    System this year.

    “As robotic capabilities continue to advance, we are very pleased to
    share the latest developments in CorPath GRX with the attendees at
    EuroPCR,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer of
    Corindus. “Dr. Fajadet is a pioneer of this technology in Europe and
    understands our ultimate vision of enhancing patient care through the
    advancement of our technology. In just a few short months, he has
    established his facility as a leader in vascular robotics and has
    demonstrated the positive impact of a high-tech care model to the
    clinical community in Europe.”

    The CorPath System is the world’s only U.S. Food and Drug Administration
    (FDA) cleared and CE marked robotic platform for percutaneous coronary
    intervention (PCI) and peripheral vascular intervention (PVI)
    procedures. CorPath GRX received CE mark for neurovascular intervention
    in April 2019, broadening the application of the CorPath GRX System to
    treat all vascular beds in Europe.

    “CorPath GRX offers the level of precision and control necessary to
    perform even the most complex PCI procedures,” said Dr. Fajadet. “The
    live case went exactly as planned. I was able to complete the procedure
    with control of all interventional devices and imaging equipment from
    the control room, providing my patient with high-quality care while
    protecting myself and the cath lab team. I am pleased to share this
    technology with my peers to demonstrate how far it has come, and the
    promising future it may provide patients.”

    EuroPCR, which is the annual meeting of the European Association of
    Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions, is celebrating its 30th
    anniversary and will host more than 11,000 participants from across the
    globe. For attendees interested in an exclusive opportunity to gain
    firsthand experience with the latest smart procedural automation
    technology available on the CorPath GRX System, register here
    and visit Corindus at booth M49 through Friday, May 24, 2019.
