Corindus Vascular Robotics, a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today announced that Tal Wenderow, Co-founder and EVP of Product & Business Development of Corindus, will present at the upcoming Design of Medical Device Conference. The conference is being held April 7-10 at The Commons Hotel & McNamara Alumni Center, on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus in Minneapolis, Minn.
CorPath is the first and only FDA-cleared technology that enables precise, robotic-assisted angioplasties to open arteries and restore blood flow in patients with coronary artery disease. The system enables precisely controlled, robotic-assisted angioplasties while the physician is seated in a lead-lined interventional cockpit protected from radiation exposure. CorPath allows the cardiologist to advance stents and guidewires millimeter-by-millimeter using joysticks and touchscreen controls.
Wenderow’s presentation, titled “Robotic Stent Placement during Coronary Intervention,” will review how robotic assistance has the potential to revolutionize vascular interventions by enabling procedures to be completed with robotic precision, which may improve outcomes. The discussion aims to provide state of the art perspective from leaders in the robotic industry. This session will take place on April 9 beginning at 2:00 p.m. CST.
“As a leader in the medical robotics space, we are pleased to have the opportunity to participate in this conference and share our insight and findings that point to an increasing need for robotics during coronary intervention,” said Tal Wenderow.
CorPath was highlighted at ACC 2014, where a live case was presented for the attendees. During the case, CorPath’s robotic precision was highlighted as the operator demonstrated the ability to move the stent in one millimeter increments, placing it where he, and the case panel, felt it was optimal for patient care.
In addition to Tal Wenderow’s talk, the catheter robotics session will feature speakers from other companies in the industry as well as academics from nationally recognized institutions.

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
