Marvin Slosman, chief executive officer of InspireMD, stated, “This truly unique video series featuring some of the most renowned thought leaders in the field of vascular interventions, and we are grateful that they have taken the time to participate in this important initiative. Topics that will be discussed include current market trends, momentum toward endovascular standard of care, technology differentiation and clinical results, delivery system topics including TCAR and TFEM approaches, and the overall progression of the landscape toward further conversion of surgical interventions to stenting.
