Abstract

The occupational hazards for interventional cardiologists include the risk of cataracts, malignancy, and orthopedic injury. Robotic technology is now available with the introduction of platforms for performing percutaneous coronary and peripheral interventions. The original remote navigation system has evolved into the current CorPath robotic system, now approved for robotic-assisted cardiovascular interventions. The system removes the operator from the tableside and has been validated for safety, feasibility, and efficacy in coronary and peripheral vascular disease.
