In just one week, Corindus will be heading west to San Francisco, CA for the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (or TCT) Conference hosted by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. TCT is the fourth conference at which CorPath is present since October 1st, as we also displayed at: Scripps Cardiovascular Conference, SCAI Transradial Interventional Program (TRIP), and the Corazon National Conference. TCT 2013 is the premier interventional cardiology conference. Each year, thousands of cardiologists from across the globe gather to discuss the latest trends, hottest technology, and best practices in interventional cardiology and beyond. Last year, after receiving FDA clearance, we launched the CorPath Vascular Robotic System at TCT 2012 in Miami, FL.
This year, we are excited to share the latest news and highlights that have occurred over the last year. In addition to our booth activities, which include hands-on demonstrations, we will be hosting a breakfast symposium on October 30th. “Optimizing PCI with Robotic Angioplasty” will feature top interventional cardiologists from across the U.S. discussing their experience performing CorPath Robotic Angioplasty, a look back at how PCI has improved since its invention and what the future of robotics in the cath lab looks like. You can see the detailed agenda on our website.
In addition to the exciting activities Corindus will be hosting, the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) will be celebrating its 25th anniversary of putting on the TCT conference. Activities to commemorate this include a day-long session on Monday entitled “25 Years of Interventional Innovation: Novel Therapies and the ‘Emerging’ Device Concepts for 2013” which will analyze the past, present, and future of interventional cardiology. Also, on Tuesday October 29th there will be an evening reception where attendees will be able to get a sneak peek into the exhibit hall and enjoy a night of celebration. This year, the conference will be paperless which means each attendee will be given a tablet to access programs and actively engage in sessions throughout the week. Each year, TCT 2013 becomes more exciting for both attendees and exhibitors and this year is shaping up to be one of the best yet.
Look out for post-show pictures and highlights coming in November. We will also be posting a recording of the breakfast symposium on our website once it is made available.
