Coronary Artery Disease: A glimpse into the future of coronary intervention
Management of patients with CAD is currently undergoing fundamental changes, with growing importance of CCTA. CCTA is a great tool for coronary imaging, analysis of coronary physiology and plaque characterization. This helps to optimize patient identification for coronary revascularization, pre-procedural planning and procedural guidance. Robotic-assisted PCI represents another paradigm shift for PCI. Robotic-assisted PCI enhances procedural accuracy while improving radiation safety and ergonomics for the interventional team. The CorPath GRX system, second generation of the Corindus robotic platform, incorporates automated device manipulations that further facilitate robotic PCI especially in complex cases. Advanced stent visualization is also helpful to improve PCI outcomes.
