"As the largest and fastest-growing sector of medical equipment, the cardiovascular device industry is bolstered by key trends such as the world's aging population, new therapeutic areas, and rapid technological advances in materials, design and technologies. The sector is not without challenges, however. Cardiovascular devices' high-risk profile impacts every aspect of product development and manufacturing. Meticulously assessing and effectively mitigating risk can be a daunting task. MedTech Cardio is a forum tailored to the designers and makers of cardiovascular devices created to provide practical information to overcome the challenges faced by the industry on a daily basis," said Brian Buntz, Editor-at-Large, MD+DI and Conference Chair at MedTech Cardio.  

"MedTech Cardio gathers a highly selective group of more than 20 speakers who are industry leaders, experts and visionaries in the cardiovascular device field," said Vu Nguyen, Conference Program Director.
