Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
Lake Region Medical, a global development and manufacturing partner to leading medical device companies, will provide peripheral vascular flow models and supplies to support clinical training conducted at the LEAD (Latest Endovascular Atherectomy Devices) Fellows Course held August 9th in Chicago, Illinois. Additionally, Lake Region will highlight its original development manufacturing capabilities, services, and technologies at the Amputation Prevention Symposium (AMP) also in Chicago, August 10-11.
“Obtaining adequate arterial access in patients with severe peripheral arterial disease often represents the difference between amputation and successful limb revascularization,” said Joanne Schulte, Clinical Specialist at Lake Region Medical. “Retrograde access is increasingly being utilized in patients with critical limb ischemia to improve limb salvage rates in instances where traditional approaches were unsuccessful in crossing below-the-knee chronic total occlusions. Our guidewire expertise and commitment to developing new wire-based technologies positions Lake Region at the forefront of this emerging therapeutic area.”
“As an original development manufacturer (ODM) and strategic development partner to leading OEM medical device companies, Lake Region has a well-established track record of delivering unmatched quality and innovation. We are expanding our new product and technology development for emerging clinical therapies,” said Robert Miraglia, Senior Product Manager, Peripheral Vascular at Lake Region. “Our increased corporate investment in peripheral vascular therapies has enabled Lake Region to expand its research in areas such as retrograde access and increase its development of unique access, delivery and retrieval systems.”
Lake Region Medical will be exhibiting at AMP August 10-11 at booth # 5.
