Hansen Medical(R) Announces FDA Clearance of the Magellan(TM) Robotic Catheter eKit
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Feb 2, 2016) - Hansen Medical®, Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), the global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the Magellan™ Robotic Catheter eKit (MRC eKit). The MRC eKit is the company's latest addition to the family of approved Magellan Robotic Catheters and helps extend robotic capabilities and control throughout procedures in the peripheral vasculature. With the MRC eKit, physicians will now have robotic control of 3rd party microcatheters through the existing Magellan Robotic Catheter 6Fr architecture. This added ability has the potential to help reduce procedure times and radiation exposure.
This approval comes after multiple cases were performed with the MRC eKit by Professor Marc Sapoval, MD, MSc at Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou (HEGP-APHP) in Paris, France as a part of the Embolization Procedures in Peripheral Vasculature clinical study. Professor Sapoval successfully performed several prostate artery embolization (PAE) procedures and uterine artery embolization (UFE) procedures with the MRC eKit as a part of this study.
