TCT 2010 to have significant impact on interventional cardiology practices and patient care
Date:4/13/2010

NEW YORK, NY -- APRIL 13, 2010 TCT 2010 (Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics) will provide significant clinical research updates to technologies and practices in interventional cardiology that will directly affect patient care.

The important role of interventional cardiology has figured prominently in recent current events with the announcement that former President Clinton received a heart stent in February at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, followed by the reporting of clinical trial data showing promising results for a heart valve repair device that is inserted via a catheter.

At TCT 2010 (September 21-25 in Washington, DC), late breaking data from clinical trials on the next generation of stents, valve repair and replacement, and the interactions and effectiveness of new medicines will shed light on the best ways to treat patients.

Stone, MD, Professor of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Director of Cardiovascular Research and Education at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and Co-Director of the Medical Research and Education Division at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. TCT is organized by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation.

"Non-surgical aortic valve replacement has the potential to be life saving for people who are at high risk for open heart surgery," Stone said. "As the population ages, this technique may dramatically benefit the quality of life for patients whose aortic valves (the valve through which blood passes from the heart to the rest of the body) fail to function properly. We are hopeful that new trial data that will be presented at TCT will usher in the field of non-operative aor
