Corindus Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results


Advancing Development Programs for Remote Robotics and Neurovascular

Vascular Robotics
, Inc. (NYSE:CVRS), a leading developer
of precision vascular robotics, today reported financial results for its
second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Recent Highlights and Accomplishments

  • Accelerated initiatives to expand robotic treatment into
    neurovascular procedures.
    Announced Aquilla "Quill" Turk, D.O.
    as Chief Medical Officer of Neurovascular Interventions and formed a
    Steering Committee of eight neurovascular physicians to advance
    robotic technology for neurovascular interventions and acute stroke
  • Meaningful progress in the development of remote vascular
    robotic technology.
    Successful telestenting procedure from a
    remote distance greater than 100 miles at Spectrum Health completed by
    Ryan Madder, M.D. in a porcine model and significant progress in
    pre-clinical trials evaluating remote robotics with the Mayo Clinic
  • Expansion in Japan. Received Pharmaceutical and Medical
    Device Agency (PMDA) approval for CorPath GRX System in Japan and
    began commercial launch with distribution partner, Japan MedicalNext,
    Co. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Healthcare)

"We have made meaningful progress advancing the development of
remote-telestenting which has, in turn, led to the acceleration of our
efforts to address the neurovascular market. We are focusing our
clinical and development work in this area to leverage the GRX platform
and expand upon what we are building in the interventional suite with
PCI and peripheral applications," stated Mark Toland, President and
Chief Executive Officer. "Despite purchase timing uncertainties and
capital budget cycles at the hospital administration level which have
impacted our results in the first half of the year, we remain confident
in our long-term ability to drive widespread robotics implementation."

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.

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
