The Magellan 10 French Robotic Catheter from Hansen Medical is indicated for use in the peripheral vasculature.
The Magellan 10Fr Robotic Catheter is the latest addition to the family of robotic catheters used with the Magellan Robotic System. The 10Fr catheter allows for independent, robotic control of two telescoping catheters (an outer guide and an inner leader catheter). The guide catheter has a 10Fr outer diameter, and features the largest inner lumen (7Fr) in the Magellan catheter family, which enables delivery of therapeutic devices through the robotic catheter in a broader range of endovascular procedures.
The Magellan Robotic System is an advanced technology that drives Magellan robotic catheters and guide wires during minimally-invasive, endovascular procedures. Magellan is designed to offer procedural predictability, precision, and catheter stability as physicians navigate inside blood vessels and deliver therapy. Image-guided medical procedures using interventional fluoroscopy, while growing rapidly, are the leading source of occupational ionizing radiation exposure for medical personnel. Magellan's remote workstation allows physicians to control robotic catheters and guide wires while seated away from the radiation field, which has been shown to reduce radiation exposure for the physician by as much as 95 percent in complex endovascular procedures.
The Magellan 10 French Robotic Catheter received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance in July 2015.
