A remote-controlled, robotic system was developed to address procedural challenges and occupational hazards associated with traditional percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The PRECISE (Percutaneous Robotically-Enhanced Coronary Intervention) Study demonstrated the safety and feasibility of the robotic system. We report 4 cases of complex coronary interventions demonstrating the capabilities of robotic-enhanced PCI to treat multi-lesion, multi-vessel coronary disease, saphenous venous graft disease, and an ST-elevation myocardial infarction. The robotic system offers enhanced visibility, precise measurement, accurate stent positioning, improved ergonomics, and superior operator protection from radiation. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
