First-in-Human Telerobotic Coronary Intervention Procedures Published in EClinicalMedicine

Journal in The Lancet family publishes successful clinical results of remote PCI procedures using CorPath GRX Robotic System technology

First-in-Human Telerobotic Coronary Intervention Procedures Published in EClinicalMedicine

September 3, 2019 — Corindus Vascular Robotics Inc. announced that EClinicalMedicine, a clinical journal published by The Lancet, has published the results from the Telerobotic Intervention Study, the world’s first percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures conducted from a remote location outside the catheterization lab. The study was conducted using Corindus’ CorPath technology platform.

The paper, titled Long Distance Telerobotic-Assisted Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: First-in-Human Experience, discusses five successful patient cases performed by Tejas Patel, M.D., chairman and chief interventional cardiologist of the Apex Heart Institute in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. The five patients featured in the paper underwent elective PCI procedures from a distance of approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Patel’s location inside the Swaminarayan Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. His partner, Sanjay Shah, M.D., was onsite in the room with each patient at the Apex Heart Institute.

“I am honored to have been a part of this medical milestone,” stated Patel. “The application of telerobotics for remote treatment has the potential to impact a significant number of lives by providing access to specialized care that may not otherwise be possible. I am pleased to share my experience with the clinical community in such a well-respected publication that is part of the Lancet family,” added Patel.

Corindus developed the remote telerobotic interventional platform to deliver highly specialized and timely cardiovascular care to underserved patient populations with geographic barriers to treatment. The company is working on product development to enable use of the CorPath System in remote interventions and expand the company’s robotic platform to address stroke care.
