Volcano Corporation Announces Schedule of Events for the 2009 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) Conference
Date:9/21/2009

ll not," said Joe Burnett, Vice President of Volcano. "PROSPECT is designed to show that not all coronary disease is the same. Some lesions may progress rapidly and lead to events. Others may remain stable for years. In the same way that biopsies are performed to stage different types of cancers, PROSPECT will determine the ability of VH IVUS to help cardiologists risk-stratify various types of atherosclerotic plaques. We hope that the data from PROSPECT will be able to identify which lesions are likely to be aggressive and lead to events, and which lesions are more likely to be stable and left alone. This may be the first step to determining which patients will benefit from early intervention and one day reduce the number of sudden heart attacks."

Breakfast Symposium

Volcano is hosting a breakfast symposium entitled "Right Patient, Right Lesion, Right Way: Healthcare reform demands precise, targeted interventions ... angiography alone is not enough." This session will focus on the importance of using more precise tools to identify which patients and lesions benefit most from stenting, and once identified, using precise imaging tools to ensure these stents are placed optimally. Speakers for this session include Morton Kern, M.D., William French, M.D. and Hoang Thai, M.D. The event will be held in room 123 of the Moscone Center on Wednesday, September 23. Breakfast will be served at 6:30 AM followed by the symposium at 7:00 AM.

Evening Symposium

Volcano will host an evening symposium entitled, "Imaging Matters! Identifying high risk patients and optimizing PCI." The symposium will include late breaking results from PROSPECT, FAME and other clinical studies. The first session of the symposium, entitled, "Can imaging help identify at-risk vulnerable plaques and patients before catastrophe (or those not at risk)," will feature presentations from Patrick W. Serruys, M.D., Gary S. Mintz, M.D., Gregg
