Hansen Medical announced the world’s first use of the Magellan Robotic System in Peripheral Vascular Disease endovascular care. The device, covered before here at Medgadget, uses robotics to allow for more precise catheter delivery and guidewire manipulation in the endovascular treatment of peripheral vascular disease.
The ability to have accurate independent distal tip control of the sheath, catheter, and robotic manipulation of guidewires from a workstation will potentially allow for reduced procedure time, radiation exposure, and possible improved quality of treatment. This milestone first clinical case was performed at St. Mary’s Hospital in London (part of the Imperial College Healthcare).
