September 6, 2023 — The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced the TCT 2023 late-breaking clinical trials. TCT is the annual scientific symposium of CRF and the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine. TCT, which will be held October 23-26, 2023 in San Francisco, California, at the Moscone Center, will be celebrating 35 years of leading the field.
For more than three decades, TCT has ignited innovation, education, and connection in interventional cardiology, with the purpose of improving the survival and quality of life of patients suffering from heart and vascular disease. Every year, TCT features cutting-edge research in interventional cardiovascular medicine that directly impacts patient care and how physicians treat heart disease.
In the fast-paced world of medical advancements, late-breaking trials are highly anticipated and offer clinicians the opportunity to learn about new interventions, drugs, techniques, or strategies that could potentially improve patient outcomes. The 12 studies selected for presentation at TCT examine the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies, and devices that demonstrate potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease. Late-breaking trials will be presented during the main sessions and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Tuesday, October 24, Wednesday, October 25, and Thursday, October 26.
