Robotic technology has been utilized in cardiovascular medicine for over a decade, and over that period, its use has been expanded to percutaneous coronary and peripheral vascular interventions. The safety and feasibility of robotically assisted percutaneous cardiovascular interventions has been demonstrated in studies including simple to complex coronary lesions, and both iliac and femoropopliteal lesions. These reports have shown that robotically assisted PCI significantly reduces operator exposure to harmful ionizing radiation without a detrimental effect on procedural success or clinical efficacy.
