DMC Heart Care Specialists Are First In Midwest To Implement "Robotic-Assisted" Revascularization To Relieve Arterial Blockages

Major breakthrough at DMC Cardiovascular Institute will revolutionize treatment for heart patients with coronary blood-flow disorders, says CVI President Theodore L. Schreiber, M.D.  

DETROIT, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Detroit Medical Center (DMC) announced today that a team of heart specialists at its Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) has successfully conducted the Midwest's first-ever "robotic-assisted" coronary revascularization to relieve heart artery blockages.  The successful implementation of the pioneering new treatment procedure – unique in Michigan and so far performed at only three institutions in the United States – means that DMC heart care patients now have access to the world's most advanced treatment method for relieving  blockages in heart arteries, said CVI President Theodore L. Schreiber, M.D.

"This is a major step forward for heart care patients in Michigan and the Midwest," said Dr. Schreiber, while describing Monday's successful implementation of the robotic-assisted angioplasty procedure at the DMC CVI.  "What it means is that many DMC heart patients can now enjoy the benefits of the world's most advanced and proven technology for removing blockages in arteries that feed the heart.

"Thanks to the remarkably precise arterial navigation advances and the enhanced visualization provided by robotic-assisted revascularization, clinicians will now be able to help heart patients with significantly advanced techniques for using stents or balloons to relieve arterial blockages.  These advances will often lead to better patient outcomes – and I don't think it's an exaggeration to suggest that this is the dawn of a new era in heart care.  Once again, the Detroit Medical Center and the Cardiovascular Institute are leading the way in pioneering a new treatment method that will help heart patients to get better as quickly and painlessly as possible."
