Procedural AutomationNavigate complex anatomies routinely
Interventionalists can encounter problems when navigating diverse vascular anatomies and crossing complex lesions. This can lead to longer procedures – with increased radiation exposure and the need for additional contrast media – or procedures being terminated.
Robotic-assisted PCI provides operators with automated movements supporting them during navigation of difficult anatomies and crossing complex lesions. These automated movements replicate the manual techniques of highly-skilled interventionalists, and are designed to help reduce time associated with wiring lesions, standardize procedures, and reduce variability in PCI across operators.
Consistent and predictable automated movements for guidewire navigation and lesion crossing with Corindus CorPath GRX provide cardiologists with greater confidence to undertake complex PCI.

How it works
Corindus CorPath GRX provides the operator with a set of automated robotic movements. These automations replicate the manual techniques of highly skilled interventionalists to provide predictable and consistent movements that aid in advanced navigation, lesion crossing, and device manipulation during complex coronary interventional procedures.
Rotate on Retract (RoR)
To reduce navigation time in difficult anatomies, such as tortuous vessels, RoR automatically rotates the guidewire when joystick is retracted and redirects guidewire tip.
To prevent prolapses in tortuous anatomy during guidewire navigation, Wiggle automatically oscillates the guidewire as it advances.
To efficiently cross lesions in complex cases and difficult anatomies , Spin utilizes clockwise and counterclockwise rotations of the guidewire.
To aid in lesion crossing and delivery of therapy, especially in very narrow or calcified lesions, Dotter utilizes rapid linear back-and-forth motions as the device advances.
