Philips and Corindus tackle interventional cardiology
Royal Philips Electronics and Corindus established an alliance agreement to add Corindus’ robotic-assisted system for the minimally invasive treatment of obstructed coronary arteries (percutaneous coronary interventions) to Philips’ interventional cardiology systems.

Natick, Mass.-based Corindus’ robotic-assisted systems for interventional cardiology procedures complement Philips’ interventional imaging and clinical informatics, the companies said. As part of the alliance agreement, Philips has acquired a minority stake in Corindus, according to Amsterdam-based Philips.
