Quoting Management: “In a little over two quarters, the Company has gone from having just one installed clinical Magellan Robotic System to nine total clinical installations that are involved in treating patients and generating data, as of March 31,” said Bruce Barclay, Hansen Medical’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am encouraged by the breadth of clinical applications in the peripheral vasculature and the positive experiences that are being generated at these hospitals. These varied applications are demonstrating the real-world medical utility of Hansen Medical’s systems, and helping to drive further interest and adoption of our technology. Today, we are reporting another quarter of record procedures, marking the seventh consecutive quarter of procedure growth. This is further evidence of the value we believe physicians and hospitals can, and are, experiencing with our intravascular robotic systems. We are particularly encouraged by recent in vitro data and clinical experiences regarding the potential benefits of endovascular robotics in the treatment of carotid artery disease.”
