Neurosurg Clin N Am. 2022 Apr;33(2):225-231. doi: 10.1016/j.nec.2021.11.008. Epub 2022 Mar 2.


After robotic systems were approved for peripheral vascular interventions, many centers adopted this technology in treating carotid diseases. Robotic systems provide several advantages by eliminating radiation exposure and decreasing the rate of musculoskeletal injuries among interventionalists. The main disadvantage this technology poses is the lack of haptic feedback. Based on the experience of our center and several others, robotic systems have proved to be efficient, feasible, and safe when treating carotid diseases. One of the main goals of robotic systems is their future potential in remotely treating stroke patients living in rural geographic areas.
