WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. [NYSE MKT: CVRS], a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today announced that its CorPath® System will be highlighted in several presentations on new therapies and techniques for the treatment of high-risk patients with complex cardiovascular disease at SDCI 2016: San Diego Cardiovascular Interventions Course, July 8 and 9, at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, La Jolla, CA. Corindus' CorPath System, the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotically-assisted precision to radial, coronary and peripheral procedures, will be featured in two live robotic-assisted complex percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) during the course.
"Robotic therapy has transformed the way we perform interventional procedures today. The benefits of robotics for staff and patients will continue to grow as technology evolves, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this growth," said Course Director Ehtisham Mahmud, MD, FACC, FSCAI, Division Chief, Cardiovascular Medicine and Medical Director, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center at the University of California, San Diego. "This course seeks to highlight the value and applicability of robotic therapy in conjunction with other emerging technologies in the cath lab to treat complex disease."
The SDCI 2016 course will highlight how robotic therapy can enhance physician and staff safety when used in complex and high-risk PCI procedures. A particular focus will be the integration of robotic therapy in procedures that also leverage the capabilities of other advanced therapeutic tools.
"The SDCI meeting is a great opportunity to advance the science of robotic therapy through demonstrations of unique live cases and presentations on the most recent clinical data for complex robotic PCI," said Corindus President and CEO Mark Toland. "As awareness of occupational hazards in the cath lab continues to grow, our CorPath technology will play a key role in building the cath lab of the future."

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.
Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The company's CorPath® System is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic-assisted precision to radial, coronary and peripheral procedures. During the procedure, the interventional cardiologist sits at a radiation-shielded workstation to advance stents and guidewires with millimeter-by-millimeter precision. The workstation allows the physician greater control and the freedom from wearing heavy lead protective equipment that causes musculoskeletal injuries. With the CorPath System, Corindus Vascular Robotics brings robotic precision to radial and complex interventional procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs associated with complications of improper stent placement with manual procedures. Corindus stands behind its product with its unique $1,000 hospital credit "One Stent Program." For additional information, visit www.corindus.com, and follow @CorindusInc.
