Hansen Medical's Magellan(TM) Robotic System to Be Presented at

Hansen Medical's Magellan(TM) Robotic System to Be Presented at 39th
Annual VEITHsymposium(TM) of Vascular Surgeons and Interventionalists 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 --  Hansen Medical,
Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), a global leader in intravascular robotics, today
announced it will exhibit its Magellan(TM) Robotic System at the 39th
Annual VEITHsymposium(TM) from November 13-17 at the Hilton New York
in New York City. The Company will be conducting product
demonstrations and exhibiting the Magellan Robotic System at Booth
202.  
Additionally, Hansen Medical will be co-sponsoring a symposium with
Philips at noon on Thursday, November 15th. The symposium, titled New
Frontiers in Hybrid OR, Advanced Imaging and Intravascular Robotics,
will feature Professor Nick Cheshire, M.D. from St. Mary's Hospital
in London and Dr. Jean Bismuth from Methodist Hospital in Houston,
who will share their clinical experiences with the Magellan Robotic
System. 
Hansen Medical also anticipates that the Magellan Robotic System will
be featured in the following scheduled presentations:  


 
--  3D Imaging and Robotic Catheter Navigation: How Can They Work Together
    to Facilitate Complex Aortic Procedures; by Alan B. Lumsden, M.D.,
    FACS; Friday, November 16, 2012, 7:59 a.m.
--  The Value of Hansen Magellan Robotic Assisted Catheter Manipulation
    for Complex Aortic Endografting, by Nicholas J.W. Cheshire, M.D.;
    Friday, November 16, 2012, 2:24 p.m.

  
"The VEITHsymposium is one of the year's seminal vascular conferences
and we are delighted to have our Magellan System featured in such a
prominent manner," said Bruce Barclay, President and CEO of Hansen
Medical. "Moreover, the timing of this meeting allows physicians to
discuss their early use of Magellan for a variety of intravascular
procedures, and continues the momentum generated by our initial
Magellan System launch in the U.S." 
About the Magellan(TM) Robotic System
 Hansen Medical's Magellan
Robotic System is based upon the flexible robotic technology
incorporated in the Sensei-X(R) Robotic Catheter System currently
sold in the U.S. and Europe, which has been used in more than 9,000
patients, but includes a number of key enhancements. In particular,
the Magellan Robotic System: 


 
--  Provides solid catheter stability for placement of therapeutic
    devices.
--  Is designed to enable predictable procedure times and increased case
    throughput.
--  Allows for independent, individual robotic control of the distal tips
    of both the outer sheath and the inner leader catheter, as well as
    robotic manipulation of standard guidewires.
--  Is designed to allow for sufficient extension inside the body to
    access hard to reach peripheral anatomy.
--  Preserves the open architecture featured in the Sensei System to allow
    for the subsequent use of many 6F therapeutic devices on the market
    today.
--  Is designed to potentially reduce physician radiation exposure and
    fatigue by employing a remote physician workstation.

  
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(TM) Robotic System, NorthStar(TM) Robotic Catheter
and related accessories, which are intended to facilitate navigation
to anatomical targets in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently
provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices, have
undergone both CE marking and 510(k) clearance and are commercially
available in the European Union and the U.S. In the European Union,
the Company's Sensei(R) X Robotic Catheter System and Artisan Control
Catheter are cleared for use during electrophysiology (EP)
procedures, such as guiding catheters in the treatment of atrial
fibrillation (AF), and the Lynx(R) Robotic Ablation Catheter is
cleared for the treatment of AF. This robotic catheter system is
compatible with fluoroscopy, ultrasound, 3D surface map and patient
electrocardiogram data. In the U.S. the Company's Sensei X Robotic
Catheter System and Artisan Control Catheter were cleared by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration for manipulation and control of certain
mapping catheters in EP procedures. In the United States, the Sensei
System is not approved for use in guiding ablation procedures; this
use remains experimental. The U.S. product labeling therefore
provides that the safety and effectiveness of the Sensei X System and
Artisan Control Catheter for use with cardiac ablation catheters in
the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, including AF, have not been
established. Additional information can be found at
