TCT to Showcase Major Research Breakthroughs in Cardiovascular Medicine

September 15, 2011 – The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced the late breaking trials and first report investigations that will be presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2011 scientific symposium. Presented in partnership with the American College of Cardiology (ACC), TCT 2011 is the world’s leading educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine and will take place Nov. 7-11, 2011 in San Francisco.

The studies selected will shed new light on the effectiveness of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies and devices that show potential to treat or prevent heart disease, one of the leading causes of death globally. TCT 2011 is expected to be the location of groundbreaking scientific reporting that will modernize care for people with cardiovascular disease and other vascular health issues. 

Late-breaking clinical trials and first report investigations will be presented in the Main Arena and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 9, Thursday, Nov. 10, and Friday, Nov. 11.
