Hansen Medical to Exhibit Magellan(TM) Robotic System at 2013 Vascular Annual Meeting(R) of the Society for Vascular Surgery

Hansen Medical to Exhibit Magellan(TM) Robotic System at 2013 Vascular Annual 
Meeting(R) of the Society for Vascular Surgery 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/13 --  Hansen Medical,
Inc. (NASDAQ: HNSN), a global leader in intravascular robotics, today
announced that it will exhibit its Magellan(TM) Robotic System at the
2013 Vascular Annual Meeting(R) of the Society for Vascular Surgery
from May 30 - June 1 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San
Francisco, CA. The Company will be exhibiting the Magellan Robotic
System and conducting product demonstrations at Booth 301. 
"We are excited to showcase our Magellan Robotic System at this
important annual meeting of leading vascular surgeons," said Bruce
Barclay, President and CEO of Hansen Medical. "Based on the over 150
vascular cases that have now been performed to date, as well as the
feedback received from clinicians worldwide and the extensive
pre-clinical work previously completed, we are confident that this
product has the potential to enhance the way physicians navigate the
vasculature. The Magellan Robotic System and Catheter give physicians
maximum flexibility and control through independent distal tip
control of a catheter and a sheath, as well as through robotic
manipulation of a standard guidewire from a centralized, remote
workstation. Moreover, this proprietary technology is designed to
deliver predictable catheter navigation of peripheral vessels." 
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
over 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
