New clinical data on a range of innovative medical devices from Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE: MDT), to treat cardiac and vascular diseases - from severe aortic stenosis and uncontrolled hypertension, to coronary and peripheral artery disease - will be presented next week at EuroPCR. Many of the presentations will be featured during late-breaking sessions at this large international interventional cardiology meeting, which takes place in Paris from May 17-20.
"Medtronic has never been better positioned to offer such an extensive array of technologies to address the difficult challenges that clinicians face every day," said Michael J. Coyle, executive vice president of Medtronic, Inc., and president of the Cardiac and Vascular Group at Medtronic. "EuroPCR presents an excellent opportunity to share some of the latest clinical evidence on these technologies, which will be discussed in scientific sessions and showcased at the highly interactive Medtronic booth."
