The future of interventional cardiology presented at TCT 2008
Date:10/7/2008

  • What do data from the latest studies and trials reveal about stents, and the future of interventional cardiology?
  • What are the newest devices and strategies in the field?
  • How are the new generation of stents performing?
  • How is the role of angioplasty evolving?

TCT 2008 is the annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation and the most widely respected forum on these important topics.
