TCT update: press conference schedule announced for TCT
Date:9/29/2008

Data from ground-breaking scientific trials of new interventional techniques and devices will be released at TCT 2008 - Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics the global annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. Researchers will present a variety of new data that promises to advance the field of interventional cardiology. Featured trials will focus on the safety and efficacy of new devices, including drug-eluting stents and other leading edge technologies, as well as comparisons of minimally invasive therapies to either medical treatment or surgery.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 9:30 A.M.

  • The differences in the ways that men and women with similar symptoms are treated by physicians
  • New types of stents, including bioabsorbable devices
  • New ways of detecting and reducing plaque, including vulnerable plaque that can cause sudden heart attack and death
