Google Glass helps cardiologists open blocked heart artery

  • In a world's first, a group of cardiologists has successfully used the eye-wearable device Google Glass to guide the opening up of a chronically blocked right coronary artery in the cardiac cath lab. Cardiologists from the Institute of Cardiology, Warsaw, Poland's capital city, successfully restored blood flow in the occluded right coronary artery of a 49-year-old male patient assisted by Google Glass with an optical head-mounted display.
