  • Patent number: 10342953
    Abstract: A catheter system including a housing and a drive mechanism supported by the housing is provided. The drive mechanism includes an engagement structure configured to engage and to impart movement to a guide wire. The engagement structure defines a path for the guide wire, and the engagement structure is moveable between an engaged position in which the engagement structure engages the guide wire and a disengaged position in which the engagement structure does not engage the guide wire. The catheter system includes a biasing element configured to bias the engagement structure toward the engaged position, and the biasing element is aligned generally parallel to the path defined by the engagement structure.

  • Patent number: 10299867
    Abstract: A robotic catheter procedure system includes a bedside system and a workstation. The bedside system includes an actuating mechanism configured to engage and to impart movement to a percutaneous device. The workstation includes a user interface and a control system configured to be operatively coupled to the user interface, the bedside system, and a medical imaging system. The control system is responsive to a first input and to a second input, and the user interface receives the second input from a user. The control system is configured to generate a first control signal to the medical imaging system based on the first input, and the medical imaging system captures at least one image in response to the first control signal. The control system is configured to generate a second control signal to the actuating mechanism based on the second input, and the actuating mechanism causes movement of the percutaneous device in response to the second control signal.

  • Publication number: 20180360398
    Abstract: A method for controlling x-ray frame rate of an imaging system for a catheter procedure system includes generating a first control signal that indicates a first frame rate and providng the first control signal to an imaging system. The imaging system obtains a first set of images at the first frame rate based on the first control signal. At least one parameter of a catheter procedure performed by the catheter procedure system is determined and a second control signal is generated based on the at least one parameter of the catheter procedure. The second control signal indicates a second frame rate. The second control signal is provides to the imaging system to adjust the first frame rate to the second frame rate. The imaging system obtains a second set of images at the second frame rate and displays the second set of images on a display.
