Update: Consensus Strategies for Device Development for Cardiovascular Disease

Building on our highly successful summit at the 2016 TCT meeting, ISCTR is collaborating with innovators, regulators, industry leaders, and others to create strategies and methodologies designed to achieve the rapid and cost-effective translation of cardiovascular device advances into clinical practice.

To that end, we are taking our next step in the process and convening a critical meeting in May of various working groups to break down the methodologies involved in the development of aortic/pulmonic valves, mitral/tricuspid valves, stents, and catheter ablation devices. We will begin this important meeting with a look at everything from data aggregation to guideline integration to the FDA approval process.

Check back often to get more details about this meeting as they are available. You can learn more about the genesis of this meeting through our coverage of our 2016 TCT summit here.
