Predicts

CLEVELAND, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland Clinic today announced its Top 10 Medical Innovations list, highlighting technologies which will likely have a big impact on healthcare in 2008.

The list of breakthrough devices and therapies was selected by a panel of Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists and was unveiled during Cleveland Clinic's 2007 Medical Innovation Summit, which is currently underway. They include therapies for valvular heart disease, unusually high cholesterol, and severe neurologic disorders.

"These innovations represent exciting technologies which may have a major impact in clinical practice in the near future," said Tomislav Mihaljevic, M.D., who chaired the Top 10 Medical Innovations List.
