Interventional Cardiology Snowmass

March 5-10, 2017

Jim Margolis

New this year:
​Active interaction between faculty, attendees and industry leaders

The rapid development of interventional cardiology – both coronary and structural – has been a result of close collaboration between interventional cardiologists and industry. Without this collaboration we would still be in the 1980’s.

Over the years we have lost that intimacy with industry that had been so vital in the past.
In 2017, we are making a major effort to reconnect. Two full sessions - and possibly a third - will be devoted to direct interaction with senior management from device companies large and small. I am asking CEO's from various companies to present their visions of the future and how they plan to meet future challenges.
