Magellan Robotic System
The Magellan Robotic System is used by physicians worldwide to navigate peripheral blood vessels in a wide variety of endovascular procedures. Magellan enables precise steering of guide wires and proprietary robotic catheters through complex anatomy, and provides a highly stable platform for the manual delivery of therapy. Physicians may also perform Magellan procedures while seated at a remote physician console, away from radiation.2,3,6,7
The Magellan Robotic System has potential benefits for patients, physicians and hospitals:
- Perform fast, predictable cases1
- Reduce radiation exposure3 and lead-related stress5
- Attract incremental patients
- Increase efficiencies3
- Access state-of-the- art treatment and robotic procedural precision.4
