Robotic interventional cardiology

"In the majority of robotic-assisted cases I perform, automated movements are particularly helpful in delivering gear – I can easily get balloons and stents around the C-shaped curve in the right coronary artery from the cockpit just like I would be able to if I were at the table. In addition to ensuring precision, this means that I’m offered a level of protection from the radiation exposure that interventional cardiologists typically experience. Robotics is one of the many components that can contribute to a radiation safety-based culture, which is a key area of focus for many teams in the interventional space to create safe working conditions and encourage strong teamwork and longevity."
