Interview with Fred Khosravi

In Vivo interviews device entrepreneur Fred Khosravi about his secrets for success in medical device company creation. Khosravi was part of the ACS organization that eventually became Guidant, where he was on the leading edge of the coronary stent revolution. That experience provided Khosravi with a broad background in interventional cardiology devices that was useful in starting his first company, carotid stent company EndoTex Interventional Systems (which was acquired by Boston Scientific) and several other successful companies.

View From the Cath Lab: Hot Issues in Cardiology

Three leading interventional cardiologists provide international perspectives on the most important issues confronting their specialty and how they will impact the device industry.

John Simpson: Reluctant Entrepreneur

John Simpson never set out to be a physician and still does not consider himself a businessman; yet he is a leading interventional cardiologist and has launched more than a half dozen successful device companies. Simpson takes pride in building successful teams, enabling him to delegate the engineering and business responsibilities to others, while focusing on what he does best: figuring out how to better treat the patient. He is perhaps best known for developing over-the-wire angioplasty through his first company, ACS, and has followed that with companies involved with ultrasound (CVIS), atherectomy (DVI and Fox Hollow), vascular closure (Perclose), and chronic total occlusions (LuMend). Simpson remains iconoclastic when it comes to patient care issues. So although angioplasty is where he made his name, he remains suspicious of stents and hopes through his current venture, Fox Hollow, to minimize their use.
