The recent acquisition of Spectranetics expands Philips’ range of therapy devices for coronary and peripheral artery disease. At this year’s congress, Philips will feature the Stellarex drug-coated balloon. Stellarex delivers top-tier clinical results for common to complex patients, targeting an underserved need in the fast growing peripheral vascular market. As the only commercially available drug-coated balloon with two reported randomized controlled trials, Stellarex has demonstrated durability with consistently high patency rates in a wide range of patients.
“TCT provides the opportunity for us to share our expanded portfolio that aims to help those affected by cardiovascular disease to get back to living their lives,” said Bert van Meurs, Business Leader Image Guided Therapy for Philips. “At the congress this year, we’ll demonstrate how we’re furthering our goal to help clinicians decide, guide, treat and confirm the right therapies for their patients and provide safe and personalized treatments to enable faster recoveries while reducing costs.”
In its TCT booth this year, Philips will also host a series of short, daily presentations and live case demonstrations on optimizing patient care for cardiovascular disease. Additionally, Philips and Spectranetics will hold a lunch symposium each day of TCT on various topics including, “State-of-the-art” PCI approach (learnings from SYNTAX II), imaging technologies for new valve therapies, and optimizing outcomes in coronary artery disease.
