TCT 2012 Late-Breaking Trials, First Report Investigations Announced

Clinical trial findings feature research breakthroughs in interventional cardiology

 

September 17, 2012

September 17, 2012 — The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) announced the late-breaking trials and first report investigations that will be presented at next month's Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2012 scientific symposium. TCT, the world's premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine, will take place Oct. 22-26 in Miami, Fla.

The studies selected will shed new light on the effectiveness and safety of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies and devices that show potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease, one of the global leading causes of death. Late-breaking clinical trials and first report investigations will be presented in the Main Arena and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Oct. 24-26).
