Hansen Medical® to Highlight Magellan™ Robotic System and Latest Magellan Robotic Catheters at 2015 Charing Cross International Symposium

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - Hansen Medical®, Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), the global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced it will exhibit its Magellan™ Robotic System at the 2015 Charing Cross International Symposium April 28- May 1 at the Olympia Grand in London, UK. The company will highlight the Magellan 6Fr Robotic Catheter and the Magellan 10Fr Robotic Catheter, both of which have more recently received CE Mark.

Hansen Medical expects that the Magellan Robotic System will be featured in the main program during nine scheduled physician presentations and at an Educational Speaker Series in the Hansen Medical booth #221 with four physician speakers. The company will also host Magellan Robotic System demonstrations at booth #221.

The company anticipates that the following sessions during CX 2015 will include discussion about intravascular robotics:

"As the portfolio of Magellan Robotic Catheters grows, patients and physicians are able to experience the benefits of robotics in more peripheral vascular procedures. We look forward to hearing presentations from several Magellan physician users during the longest running vascular and endovascular symposium in Europe," said Cary Vance, Hansen Medical's President and Chief Executive Officer.

About the Magellan™ Robotic System
Hansen Medical's Magellan Robotic System is intended to be used to facilitate navigation in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices. The Magellan Robotic System is designed to deliver predictability, control and catheter stability to endovascular procedures. Since its commercial introduction in the U.S. and Europe, the Magellan Robotic System has demonstrated its clinical versatility in many cases in a broad variety of peripheral vascular procedure types in centers across the U.S. and Europe. The Magellan Robotic System offers several important features including:

  • Provides predictability, control and catheter stability as a physician navigates a patient's peripheral vasculature and then provides a conduit for manual treatment of vascular disease with standard therapeutic devices.
  • Is designed to enable more predictable procedure times and increased case throughput potentially allowing hospitals to improve utilization within their vascular business line
  • Employs an open architecture designed to allow for the subsequent use of many therapeutic devices on the market today.
  • Is designed to potentially reduce physician radiation exposure and fatigue by allowing the physician to navigate procedures while seated comfortably at a remote workstation away from the radiation field and without wearing heavy lead as required in conventional endovascular procedures.
  • The Magellan 9Fr and 10Fr Robotic Catheters allow for independent, robotic control of the distal tip of two telescoping catheters (an outer Guide and an inner Leader catheter), as well as robotic manipulation of standard guide wires.
  • The Magellan 6Fr Robotic Catheter allows for independent robotic control of two separate bend sites on a single catheter, as well as robotic manipulation of standard guide wires. This smaller catheter design may be preferred by certain physicians who prefer a smaller diameter vessel access site, or in procedures in smaller vessels.

About Hansen Medical, Inc.
Hansen Medical, Inc., based in Mountain View, California, is the global leader in Intravascular Robotics, developing products and technology designed to enable the accurate positioning, manipulation and control of catheters and catheter-based technologies. The Company's Magellan™ Robotic System, Magellan Robotic Catheters, and related accessories are intended to facilitate navigation to anatomical targets in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices. The Company's mission is to enable Cardiac Arrhythmia and Endovascular Procedures and to improve patient outcomes through the use of Intravascular Robotics. Additional information can be found at
