CorPath© GRX Vascular Robotic System
What is the CorPath© GRX Vascular Robotic System?
CorPath© GRX Vascular Robotic System is the second generation robotic system designed to provide robotic-assisted Interventional procedures with the high level of accuracy. The application of robotics in procedures provides the benefits of precise device manipulation and creating a safer environment for patients (reduced radiation exposure).
Why is CorPath© GRX Vascular Robotic System used?
CorPath© GRX Vascular Robotic System is used for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) procedures in which precise device and stent position is required for better outcomes. It enables robotic control of the guide catheter, guidewire and balloon or stent catheter, with 1 mm advancement, from the Control Console operated by your doctor.
What happens during the procedure?
During a CorPath© GRX robotic-assisted intervention, your doctor sits in a radiation-shielded workstation and uses a set of joysticks to perform the procedure. The cassette translates the signals from the joystick into precise movements of guidewires and rapid-exchange catheters. Robotic-assisted intervention facilitates precise measurement of anatomy and device positioning along with reduced radiation exposure for both medical team and patient.
How long will it take?
When compared with traditional technique, CorPath© GRX offers a high level of precision and performs even the most complex PCI procedures in lesser time.
What happens after the procedure?
When you undergo a procedure robotically using CorPath© GRX Vascular Robotic System, your radiation exposure is substantially reduced and a more precise placement of stent is ensured. Thus, your hospital stay is comparatively less due to speedy recovery.
