New York, NY – March 14, 2019 – Research from the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) and the CRF Clinical Trials Center will be presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual Scientific Session taking place March 16-18, 2019 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. They will be presenting the latest data on percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), imaging technologies, renal denervation, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement. 

Dr. Martin Leon, CRF Founder and Co-Director, Medical Research and Education, will present results of the PARTNER 3 Trial: Transcatheter or Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement in Low-Risk Patients during the joint ACC/NEJM late-breaking clinical trial session on Sunday, March 17 from 8:00 AM – 8:15 AM in the  ACC.19 Main Tent (Great Hall).  Additionally, Dr. Ajay Kirtane, Co-Director of CRF’s annual scientific symposium, TCT, will be presenting six-month results of the RADIANCE-HTN SOLO trial following the addition of a recommended standardized stepped-care antihypertensive treatment to the randomized treatment on Saturday, March 17 from 9:17 AM – 9:27 AM in Room 208.

CRF will also host a satellite program on the management of complex and higher-risk patients indicated for coronary revascularization prior to the start of ACC. The program, CHIP at ACC.19: Practical Strategies for Troubleshooting Complex Cases, will be held on Friday, March 15, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM at the Marriott New Orleans (Mardi Gras A-E Ballroom, 3rd floor). Case-based presentations will address treatment of calcified lesions, bifurcation disease, chronic total occlusions, in-stent restenosis, and coronary artery disease in the post-CABG setting. Expert faculty will offer insights into selecting patients and devices, optimizing technique, and overcoming difficult anatomy.

Additional research from CRF and the CRF Clinical Trials Center include the following presentations:
