Enhancing the Way Surgeons Perform Endovascular Procedures
 

What if there was a technology that could improve patients' and surgeons' quality of life and save hospitals money at the same time? What if this technology could also change the way endovascular procedures are performed?

Centerline Biomedical, a Cleveland Clinic spin-off, is developing IOPS, an innovative system to navigate catheters and guide wires (and ultimately devices) in the 3D anatomy of patients--and transform the way surgeons perform endovascular surgery with minimal impact to existing workflow.  

As the incidence of vascular disease continues to grow, surgeons are challenged to find the best way to treat patients while reducing the exposure to harmful radiation. Our innovative technology will benefit patients, caregivers, and the entire healthcare system.  They are also challenged to make the benefits of endovascular surgery available in more complex cases.

That’s where Centerline steps in.  Centerline’s navigation solutions aim to:

Lower healthcare costs

Lower healthcare costs

  • Simpler, more efficient procedures means better utilization of operating rooms.
  • Increased patient throughput allows for higher revenue and greater return on investment.
Provide accurate navigation

Provide accurate navigation

  • Our 3D vascular navigation system aims to reduce errors and costly follow-up procedures.
Reduce harmful radiation

Reduce harmful radiation

  • By reducing radiation exposure and contrast dye usage, our system can reduce the risk of cancer and potentially serious reactions to contrast dye.

While IOPS initially targets aortic repair, it is a platform technology that can improve minimally-invasive procedures performed all over the body.

Technology for the whole body
 
“I was intrigued by the possibility of using this technology for all vascular interventions. If patient and physician are protected from radiation for more common procedures, the impact of this technology becomes even more profound.”
