September 22, 2015 — Hansen Medical Inc. announced it will exhibit its Magellan robotic system at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) Scientific Meeting Sept. 26-30 in Lisbon, Portugal. The company will showcase the Magellan 6Fr Robotic Catheter that is used by interventional radiologists in embolization procedures, and will conduct Magellan demonstrations.

The Magellan robotic system is intended to facilitate navigation in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices.

The meeting marks the 30th anniversary of CIRSE and is the largest IR event of 2015. During this year's CIRSE meeting, Hansen Medical will host an educational speaker series at its booth to discuss how intravascular robotics is helping to advance embolization procedures and reduce radiation exposure. This series includes the following sessions:

  • September 26 - Incorporating Intravascular Robotics in Embolization- Marc Sapoval, M.D., Ph.D. (Paris, France)
  • September 26 and September 27 - Experiences with Robotic Assisted UFE- Mohamad Hamady, M.D. (London, UK)
  • September 27 and September 28 - Update on PAE and Role for Robotics- Sandeep Bagla, M.D. (Alexandria, Virginia)
  • September 28 - Robotic Catheter Assistance: The Relationship on Radiation Exposure- Barry Katzen, M.D. (Miami, Florida)

Hansen Medical is also highlighting its efforts to reduce radiation exposure for physicians, staff and patients as a sponsor of the second annual Radiation Protection Pavilion. The pavilion is an interactive awareness campaign for radiation protection and dose management in interventional radiology. Katzen will discuss the role of robotic technology in reducing radiation exposure.

Magellan is also featured in CIRSE's Product Launch portfolio, which highlights new data — presented by Katzen and Sandeep Rao, M.D. — and indicating a greater than 90 percent physician radiation reduction during robotic-assisted endovascular procedures, as compared to manually performing a procedure at the bedside.
