Advancing Development Programs for Remote Robotics and Neurovascular Applications

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. [NYSE American: CVRS], a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Recent Financial Highlights and Business Accomplishments:

  • Revenue totaled $3.0 million during the third quarter, a 78% increase over the prior quarter;
  • Shipped 524 cassettes in the quarter, a 34% increase over the prior quarter;
  • Completed our remote percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) pre-clinical work;
  • On track to conduct the world’s first in-human remote robotic PCI procedure in India by end of year 2018;
  • Assisted by our neurovascular steering committee, preparing our neurovascular FDA submission for early 2019;
  • High-impact participation at the annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Conference (TCT), the largest cardiology conference in the world, highlighted by multiple “live” robotic cases using CorPath GRX including:
    • Two complex PCI cases
    • Our remote PCI demonstration in a porcine model using CorPath GRX with developmental remote technology in conjunction with the Mayo Clinic;
  • Dr. Jihad Mustapha, a pioneer in critical limb ischemia (CLI) treatment, presented a taped case of robotic-assisted CLI at AMP, the peripheral conference dedicated to CLI and amputation prevention;
    • Emphasized the value of robotic-assistance for enhanced device control
    • Highlighted the significant reduction in radiation exposure and time in lead for operators performing long and highly complex procedures; and
  • Partnership discussions ongoing to co-develop and commercialize a neurovascular robotic platform with remote capabilities.

"During the quarter, we continued to make progress on developing a vascular robotic system that can perform therapeutic procedures at any remote location. Demonstrating this technology at TCT gives us great confidence as we plan for the first-ever remote robotic in human PCI procedure later this year," said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"Telerobotics combined with AI has generated significant interest from the clinical community as well as potential strategic partners. We look forward to updating the market as we advance our remote vascular robotic technology, which we believe has the potential to revolutionize treatment times for patients suffering from stroke and heart attacks," added Toland.

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.

Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The Company's CorPath® System is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic precision to percutaneous coronary and vascular procedures. During the procedure, the interventionalist sits at a radiation-shielded workstation to advance guide catheters, stents, and guidewires with millimeter-by-millimeter precision. The workstation allows the physician greater control and the freedom from wearing heavy lead protective equipment that causes musculoskeletal injuries. CorPath GRX is the second generation robotic-assisted technology offering enhancements to the platform by adding important key upgrades that increase precision, improve workflow, and extend the capabilities and range of procedures that can be performed robotically. With the CorPath System, Corindus Vascular Robotics brings robotic precision to interventional procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs associated with complications of improper stent placement during manual procedures.
