Company’s Research and Technology Investments Strengthen Position as a Development Partner in the Peripheral Vascular, Cardiovascular, and Structural Heart Markets

Lake Region Medical, an original development and manufacturing partner (ODM) to leading medical device companies, will highlight its capabilities, services and technologies at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in San Francisco, California.

“Our clinical and market franchise focus is driving a robust pipeline of innovative products and technologies for peripheral vascular, cardiovascular, and structural heart applications,” said Jim Mellor, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Lake Region. “510(k) registration and CE mark approval of the Pre-Formed TAVR guidewire, introduction of new platform technologies, and our partnership with the Tyndall Institute in Cork, Ireland to develop proprietary sensor-based guidewire technologies position Lake Region as a premier development partner of access, delivery, and retrieval systems.”

“Our clinical focus continues to pay dividends in terms of key input from physician reviewers, new market opportunities, and prioritized development programs,” said Ron Von Wald, Global Marketing Director of Lake Region. “Accelerated development of new technology platforms for guidewires, vascular filters, and retrieval systems—combined with research on the integration of electrical and fiber optic conductors onto a guidewire platform—enhance our ability to provide customers with market-driven solutions instrumental in supporting their core lines of business.”

Lake Region Medical will be exhibiting at TCT October 29 – 31 at booth # 1209.
