Both devices will be discussed in the day-long scientific symposium "Vulnerable Plaque: Emerging Direction for Diagnosis and Treatment." Professor Patrick W. Serruys of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam will discuss clinical experience with the vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield in stabilizing vulnerable plaque at 5:05 pm. Prof Serruys commented, "Recent developments in the field of vulnerable plaque are very exciting." He added, "We are finally making progress in characterizing, understanding, and potentially treating these lesions." Other key presentations include discussions of preclinical and clinical studies by Juan Granada, MD, of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, and Giuseppe Sangiorgi, MD, Director of Interventional Cardiology at the University of Rome at 9:00 am, 3:30 pm, and 4:45 pm.

4:00 pm-4:20 pm, Room 134, Wednesday, September 23rd:

Dr. Granada, will present key findings relating to the low-injury self-expanding design of the vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield during "Coronary Stent Design and Device Development."

4:45 pm-4:55 pm, Room 133, Thursday, September 24th:

Dr. Granada will present additional data on the vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield during "The Re-Emergence of Nitinol Self-Expanding Coronary Stents," a special session dedicated to exploring the re-emergence of self-expanding coronary stents led by the vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield. Dr. Granada commented, "It has become clear that stent designs and materials should be tailored to the pathophysiology of the lesion to be treated. The Shield is designed specifically to minimize arterial injury and its consequences, making it ideal for softer plaques."
