Magellan Robotic System

The Magellan Robotic System provides precision and efficiencies in vascular procedures, enabling physicians to perform fast, predictable procedures

The Magellan Robotic System is used by physicians worldwide to navigate peripheral blood vessels in a wide variety of endovascular procedures. Magellan enables precise steering of guide wires and proprietary robotic catheters through complex anatomy, and provides a highly stable platform for the manual delivery of therapy. Physicians may also perform Magellan procedures while seated at a remote physician console, away from radiation.2,3,6,7

The Magellan Robotic System has potential benefits for patients, physicians and hospitals:


  • Perform fast, predictable cases1
  • Reduce radiation exposure3 and lead-related stress5
  • Attract incremental patients
  • Increase efficiencies3
  • Access state-of-the- art treatment and robotic procedural precision.4
