A microrobotic platform for the image-guided endovascular intervention for treatments of vascular diseases. The microrobotic platform utilizes the nanorobots swarm and the magnetic actuation system for active drug delivery to a targeted region inside the vessels, delivering high dose of drugs to the region locally with lower overall required drug dosage.
Endovascular interventions are essential for the treatment of various vascular diseases. However, they are often limited by the tethered design and size of the medical tools, making access to tiny and tortuous vessels time consuming or even impossible, causing complications or even death of the patients.
