Hansen Medical to Exhibit Its Magellan(TM) Robotic System at 35th Annual 
Charing Cross International Symposium 
Magellan(TM) Robotic System to Be Featured in Multiple Presentations
and Company to Host Joint Symposium With Philips 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/13 --  Hansen Medical,
Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), a global leader in intravascular robotics, today
announced it will showcase its Magellan(TM) Robotic System at the
35th Annual Charing Cross International Symposium from April 6-9 in
London. The Company will be exhibiting the Magellan Robotic System at
Booth 628. 
In addition, Professor Nick Cheshire, MD of St. Mary's Hospital, part
of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London, and Barry
Katzen, MD, founder and Medical Director of the Baptist Cardiac &
Vascular Institute (Baptist Hospital of Miami), will participate in a
panel discussion titled, "Great Debate: Influence of Robotics and
Simulators," during the "Carotid Challenges" session at 10:00 am on
Tuesday, April 9.  
Hansen Medical will also be co-sponsoring a symposium with Philips
Healthcare from 12:30 pm-3:30 pm on Monday, April 8 in the Green
Learning Center, titled "Advanced Imaging in the Hybrid Operating
Room." This symposium will feature Dr. Katzen who will discuss his
clinical experiences with the Magellan System in a variety of
interventional procedures. 
Lastly, on Sunday, April 7 at 4:45 pm Professor Jean-Pierre
Becquemin, MD of Creteil, France will present on his experiences with
the Magellan System in a presentation titled, "Early Experiences with
Intravascular Robotics." 
"We are pleased that our Magellan Robotic System will be highlighted
at Charing Cross, Europe's longest running and leading vascular
symposium," said Bruce Barclay, President and CEO of Hansen Medical.
"The presentations featuring our technology will provide additional
opportunities for clinicians to better understand the significant
clinical and economic benefits, and real world medical utility,
provided by the Magellan System. We are also excited to be co-hosting
a symposium with our partner Philips for the second consecutive year.
Since commencing the initial U.S. launch of the Magellan System last
June, we have generated a large and growing pipeline of clinical
interest in our robotic t
echnology, and we look forward to further
building on this momentum at Charing Cross." 
"At St. Mary's, we have performed a breadth of complex endovascular
procedures with the Magellan Robotic System in the past year," said
Professor Cheshire. "Charing Cross, being the premier European
endovascular event, affords us the opportunity to discuss the
clinical benefits we're seeing through the implementation of
intravascular robotics." 
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
excess of 10,000 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
