ST. LOUIS, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Stereotaxis, Inc. (Nasdaq:
STXS) announced today that it launched the Odyssey
Interventional Network, a training and educational video sharing
web portal for the global cardiovascular community. The
portal will showcase innovative electrophysiology (EP) and
interventional cardiology (IC) procedures from leading centers
around the world. The Odyssey Interventional Network utilizes
Stereotaxis’ state-of-the-art Odyssey technology platform to
deliver a synchronized, high-definition view of all information
available during a procedure. This allows specialists,
referring doctors and patients an opportunity to virtually
experience real interventional procedures and learn about the
techniques of world-class clinical experts from the comfort of
their home or office.
The first online broadcast features a recorded EP procedure
hosted by Dr. Andrea Natale, MD, FACC, FHRS and Dr. David
Burkhardt, MD, FACC from the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at
St. David’s Medical Center in Austin, TX. They performed a
case on a 50-year old patient with significant coronary artery
disease who had received multiple shocks from his implantable
defibrillator for ventricular tachycardia (VT) despite medical
therapy. The patient was successfully treated during the
procedure with the Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System as the
doctors narrate the case.
The Odyssey Interventional Network represents a paradigm shift
for the delivery of medical education. Online procedures are
often low-quality broadcasts with a limited view of the case.
Procedures that are broadcast on the Odyssey Interventional
Network feature a complete, synchronized view of the many systems
in the interventional lab in high definition, preserving the fine
details of diagnostic and imaging data.
