WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. (OTCQB:CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, will sponsor a dinner event during the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2015 Scientific Sessions in San Diego, California. The dinner event, “21st Century Solutions to the Current Cath Lab Challenges: UC San Diego Approach,” will take place on Thursday, May 7, from 7 – 9 p.m. at the UC San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center, and will feature Dr. Ehtisham Mahmud, Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine, Director of Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center at UCSD, who will discuss cath lab economics of simple and complex PCI.
Attendees of the dinner event will also hear from Anthony DeMaria, MD, MACC, Professor of Medicine, Founding Director, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, University of California, San Diego about his view on the “Future of Cardiology;” Manos Brilikas, MD, Director, VAMC Catheterization Lab, UT Southwestern, about the hazards of working in the cath lab; and Giora Weisz, MD, FACC, FSCAI, Chairman, Department of Cardiology, Shaare Zedek Medical Center about the benefits of robotic-assisted PCI.
Dinner guests will also have the opportunity to tour the UC San Diego Medical Center’s catheterization lab and see how robotics can be applied to complex PCI within the lab’s daily workflow. In addition to allowing cardiologists to advance stents and guidewires millimeter-by-millimeter using digital controls, the CorPath System enables physicians to perform procedures while seated in a lead-lined interventional cockpit protected from radiation exposure.
In addition to sponsoring the dinner event, Corindus will showcase its technology in booth #313 at SCAI 2015. Attendees are invited to perform a CorPath robotic-assisted PCI using a virtual reality simulator in the booth.
