October 4, 2018 – The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) had 15 late-breaking trials and 12 late-breaking clinical science presentations at the 2018 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium. TCT, the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine, which took place Sept. 21–25, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
Every year, TCT features major medical research breakthroughs and highlights the latest data on the most innovative treatments that will impact patient care and how physicians treat heart disease, the leading cause of death in the world. The studies selected examine the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies, and devices that show potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease.
