Educational Activities will Highlight CorPath GRX Capabilities in PVI
procedures

Corindus
Vascular Robotics
, Inc. (NYSE:CVRS), a leading developer
of precision vascular robotics, announced today that the CorPath GRX
System will be showcased for peripheral applications at the 2018
Amputation Prevention Symposium in Chicago, IL. Jihad Mustapha, M.D.,
Interventional Cardiologist and AMP course director, will moderate an
educational session entitled "Robotic Utilization in CLI in 2018:
Protect Your Staff, Protect Yourself" on Friday, August 10th
at 4:00 p.m. CT. During this session, Dr. Mustapha will share and
discuss a previously taped procedure in which he used the CorPath GRX
System during a robotic-assisted critical limb ischemia (CLI) case he
performed at the first U.S. outpatient CLI center, the Advanced Cardiac
& Vascular Amputation Prevention Center in Grand Rapids, MI, which was
opened by Dr. Mustapha and Dr. Fadi Saab in February 2018.

"CorPath GRX offers discrete movements with precise control of
interventional devices, offering advanced treatment options for patients
suffering from CLI while reducing physician fatigue," said Dr. Jihad
Mustapha. "I believe robotics will enable physicians to perform more CLI
procedures and will be a critical component to the future treatment
paradigm for limb salvage patients. I look forward to educating my peers
and the CLI community on my experience with robotic-assisted CLI."

Corindus will feature robotic-assisted peripheral vascular intervention
(PVI) in Pavilion B with an opportunity for attendees to experience
hands-on demonstrations of the CorPath GRX System with an advanced
simulator. During exhibit hours, the Corindus Research and Development
team will host a Next-Generation Robotics Showcase in Pavilion B for
physicians to participate in development initiatives to capture manual
device manipulation data. This data will help support the advancement of
current robotic capabilities as well as feed into future technology
advancements. AMP attendees are invited to pre-register for a
demonstration and the Next-Generation Robotics Showcase by visiting www.corindus.com/AMP2018.

Corindus received 510(k) clearance for use of its CorPath GRX System in
peripheral procedures in February 2018, broadening the capabilities of
the CorPath robotic technology platform from exclusively treating
coronary artery disease (CAD) to include peripheral artery disease
(PAD), a disease of blood vessels outside the heart that commonly
affects arteries carrying blood to the lower extremities. Critical limb
ischemia (CLI), a form of PAD, is associated with excessively high risk
for cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction, and death.
Mortality rates following diagnosis of CLI are as high as 20% after 6
months and 50% after 5 years.1 It is estimated that total
hospital costs associated with lower-extremity amputation exceed the
cost of revascularization by approximately $10,000.2

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.

Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in
robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The company's CorPath® System
is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic precision to
percutaneous coronary and percutaneous vascular procedures. During the
procedure, the interventional cardiologist sits at a radiation-shielded
workstation to advance guide catheters, stents, and guidewires with
millimeter-by-millimeter precision. The workstation allows the physician
greater control and the freedom from wearing heavy lead protective
equipment that causes musculoskeletal injuries. CorPath GRX is the
second generation robotic-assisted PCI technology offering enhancements
to the platform by adding important key upgrades that increase
precision, improve workflow, and extend the capabilities and range of
procedures that can be performed robotically. With the CorPath System,
Corindus Vascular Robotics brings robotic precision to interventional
procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs
associated with complications of improper stent placement during manual
procedures. Corindus stands behind its product with its unique $1,000
hospital credit "One Stent Program." For additional information, visit www.corindus.com,
