abstract

  • This initial experience in flexible robotics demonstrates that this technology is both efficacious and safe in the arterial tree. Although robotics provides superior maneuverability compared with current techniques, endovascular experience is crucial to taking full advantage of the extra capabilities. Valuable future considerations will include off-the-wall (center lumen) navigation with three-dimensional imaging.
