Robotics for endovascular interventions: a need?

Robotics have been introduced in medicine with the DaVinci robotic system for minimal invasive surgery. Meanwhile, robotic systems have been developed and used to facilitate endovascular therapy for peripheral and visceral arterial interventions. The Magellan robotic system was designed to facilitate difficult vascular cannulation/catheterization (i.e. angulated branches), provide more stability for catheter manipulation and interventions, and reduce radiation dose to the operators by allowing for remote control of the robotic catheter. The present review article is intended to provide an overview on where robotic technology for endovascular therapy stands, an update on the research as well as some clinical implications using the Magellan robotic system.
