Start-Up Spotlight: Innovative Cardiovascular Solutions Hopes To Win Regulatory Nod For Embolic Protector For TAVR
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is performed routinely using devices providing protection from stroke as standard of care. However, cerebral embolic protection devices currently available do not capture and remove emboli from all three vessels leading to the brain. The Emblok Embolic Protection System from Innovative Cardiovascular Solutions (ICS) has developed an embolic filter designed to protect all three cerebral vessels during TAVR and remove debris from the entire circulatory system.

It also includes critical insights from a leading interventional urologist on the pros and cons of using these various technologies in treating prostate cancer.
Market Intel: EU Ortho Close-Up: Rising, But Varying Orthopedic/Spinal Opportunities In 5 European Markets
A rising and more active aging population, and a growing incidence of osteoporosis fractures and back pain – as well as other spine-related issues – are paving the way for companies to bring innovative devices into the hands of orthopedic and spinal surgeons in Spain, Italy, Germany, the UK and France.
