Merit Laureate® Hydrophilic Guide Wire and EN Snare® Endovascular Snare System Product Demonstrations Generate Interest at the 2012 TCT Meeting in Miami

The 2012 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) Meeting took place Oct. 23-25 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Merit Medical’s booth was a frequently visited destination at the meeting. While many attendees enjoyed Merit Medical’s complimentary BowTie™ Guide Wire Insertion Device slush drink bar, the Merit Laureate, ONE Snare™*, EN Snare, Ostial PRO®, as well as the Radial Approach product demonstrations were the real draw.

Hands-on demonstrations of products provided attendees the opportunity to insert the Prelude® Sheath Introducers and to apply the Finale® Radial Compression Device on an anatomical model. The anatomical discovery models allowed attendees to see and feel the exceptional torque control and turn-for-turn responsiveness of the Merit Laureate Hydrophilic Guide Wire. The ONE Snare Single Loop Snare and the EN Snare Triple Loop Snare were demonstrated on a new discovery model with dual image screens and was a very popular demonstration.

Attendees showed a lot of interest in the Ostial PRO Stent Positioning System. This guide wire system is designed to provide consistent and precise stent placement in aorta-ostial lesions during coronary or peripheral interventional procedures.

Merit Medical had a great show and we are looking forward to continuing to provide product innovations and accessories designed to enhance the practice of interventional cardiology.
