VANCOUVER, Oct. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - Neovasc Inc. ("Neovasc" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVCN) (TSX: NVC) outlined today its notable presentations at the upcoming annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) symposium, the world's largest educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine in Washington, DC from October 29 to November 2, 2016.
On October 31, Dr. Anson Cheung will be providing an update on the Tiara transcatheter mitral valve clinical program. Tiara devices are currently being implanted under compassionate use in several geographies, as well as in the TIARA-I Early Feasibility Trial, a multinational, multicenter trial being conducted in the US, Europe and Canada. The trial is assessing the safety and performance of the Tiara mitral valve system and the implantation procedure in high-risk surgical patients suffering from severe mitral regurgitation (MR).
Also on October 31, Dr. Gregg Stone will be highlighting Reducer's clinical results in treating refractory angina. Reducer, CE-marked in Europe, is a medical device that provides relief of severe angina symptoms by increasing pressure in the coronary sinus, thus redistributing blood flow into the ischemic heart muscle. Placement of the Reducer is performed using a minimally invasive transvenous procedure that is similar to implanting a coronary stent and is completed in approximately 20 minutes.
