Track: Center Stage

Format: 45-Minute Panel

Join our panel for an in-depth look at the design thinking and new technology being deployed in the product development processes used by leading cardiovascular, neurovascular, endovascular and other interventional device manufacturers. Panelists will discuss what they feel are the next areas of unmet need for products in this space. Attendees will get an intimate look at how top innovators think and work. And, you'll take home tips to inspire their own product development teams to achieve greatness.

Topics covered include:
  • The latest in surgical technology, tools, and systems
  • Design challenges for minimally invasive devices, including a look at current materials being used
  • Overcoming regulatory and quality hurdles
  • Innovating within market constraints to provide new solutions to old problems
