Conventional atherosclerosis treatment has long been executed by the human hand alone. It can lack the visibility and maneuverability that is needed for calcified atherosclerosis atherectomy, and it might not offer the precision that is needed for calcified atherosclerosis treatment, which could be provided by an algorithm assisted system.
Rose is an atherectomy platform explorative future concept for interventional cardiology that provides the precision and flexibility needed for calcified coronary artery lesion preparation in a percutaneous coronary intervention.
It could work together with AR glasses such as Microsoft Hololense and the latest Xray image technology by Philips, which allows the physician to have more control and overview of the complicated intravascular lesion structure.
Robotic catheter distal tip articulation enables the physician to navigate the catheter to the lesion, even passing through arteries with tight turns. Data assisted, real-time navigation, allows the physician to execute the subsequent procedure steps with more confidence and safety.
Physicians can work with Rose directly to execute the atherectomy procedure in a regular daily routine, or remotely from another location using a conventional game controller to perform the intervention procedure over the internet.
In this way, specialist knowledge is not only accessible to the patient in the local area, but it is available to assist any patient anywhere in the world.
