Annual Scientific Symposium Will Take Place September 16-19, 2022 in Boston

NEW YORK – August 4, 2022 – The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced the late-breaking clinical science that will be presented at TCT 2022. TCT is the annual scientific symposium of CRF and the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine. It will take place September 16-19 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Every year, TCT features cutting-edge research in interventional cardiovascular medicine that directly impacts patient care and how physicians treat heart disease. The 32 studies selected examine the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies, and devices that demonstrate potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease. Late-breaking science will be presented in the Clinical Science and Endovascular Theater and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Saturday, September 17, Sunday, September 18, and Monday, September 19.
