Abstract

Robotic-assisted technology has shown to be promising in coronary and peripheral vascular interventions. Early case reports have also demonstrated its efficacy in neuro-interventions. However, there is no prior report demonstrating use of the robotic-assisted platform for spinal angiography. We report the feasibility of the robotic-assisted thoracic and lumbar spinal angiography.
