Executive Summary

Now that percutaneous coronary inverventions (PCIs) outnumber coronary bypass surgeries by nearly four to one, interventional cardiologists are spending significantly more time in the cath lab. Because PCIs are performed using radiological guidance, physicians must wear leaded garments to protect them from radiation exposure during lengthy procedures. The weight of these garments can lead to orthopedic back and joint problems over time. Corindus is addressing the occupational hazards that have accompanied PCI's growth with a remote control catheterization system that enables cardiologists to advance and manipulate interventional devices inside patients' arteries from a safe distance.
