Complex Robotic-Enhanced Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Complex Robotic-Enhanced Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Vishal Kapur et al. Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. .


A remote-controlled, robotic system was developed to address procedural challenges and occupational hazards associated with traditional percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The PRECISE (Percutaneous Robotically Enhanced Coronary Intervention) Study demonstrated the safety and feasibility of the robotic system. We report four cases of complex coronary interventions demonstrating the capabilities of robotic-enhanced PCI to treat multilesion, multivessel coronary disease, saphenous venous graft disease, and an ST-elevation myocardial infarction. The robotic system offers enhanced visibility, precise measurement, accurate stent positioning, improved ergonomics, and superior operator protection from radiation.

Keywords: ACS, acute coronary syndrome; ANGO; CAD, coronary artery disease; GRFT, bypass grafts-coronary; PCI, percutaneous coronary intervention; angiography-coronary.
