Agenda Now Available Online

NEW YORK – August 7, 2018 – The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced the 15 late-breaking trials and 12 late-breaking clinical science presentations that will be reported at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2018 scientific symposium. TCT, the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine, will take place September 21 – 25, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

Every year, TCT features major medical research breakthroughs and highlights the latest data on the most innovative treatments that will impact patient care and how physicians treat heart disease, the leading cause of death in the world. The studies selected examine the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies, and devices that show potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease.

Late-breaking clinical trials and late-breaking science will be presented in the Main Arena and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Saturday, September 22; Sunday, September 23; Monday, September 24; and Tuesday, September 25. TCT press conferences will be held each morning beginning at 7:30 AM PT.

The complete agenda for TCT 2018 is now available online. Browse through a wide array of topics and learn more about individual sessions, presentations, and faculty. Media are invited to attend TCT and can apply for media credentials online at: http://www.crf.org/tct/press/press-registration-form.
