TCT 2008 Begins This Weekend in Washington, D.C.

October 7, 2008 - Now in its 20th year the 2008 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) symposium, sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, will take place from Sunday, Oct. 12 through Friday, Oct. 17 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

TCT is said to be the world’s premier conference in interventional cardiology, endovascular medicine, and structural heart disease, where the latest trends, research findings, and techniques are disseminated to practicing physicians from around the world. The symposium will feature live procedures originating from more than 25 leading U.S. and international medical centers featuring world-renowned operators performing complex interventions. Cases will be presented with an interactive and thematic approach in three distinct tracks for coronary, endovascular, and structural heart disease.

Diagnostic and Invasive Cardiology magazine has created the TCT FastPass Web site to guide clinicians through the products being highlighted by manufacturers at the show, and to update them with the latest technology news coming out of the event. Visit
