At PCR, Valves Steal The Show, But DES Shine

Executive Summary

Every year for just about the past decade, drug-eluting stents dominated the agenda at the Paris Course on Revascularization and just about any meeting where interventional cardiologists gathered to hear the latest in technology and practice innovation. But without question, the star of this year’s PCR was percutaneous heart valves and, in particular the revolution in transaortic valve replacement that has been ushered in by Edwards Lifesciences., which acquired Percutaneous Valve Technologies several years ago, and Medtronic., as a result of its more recent CoreValve acquisition.

Edwards: Transcatheter Valve Leader Proves You Can Go Home Again

After exploring a number of new product markets to drive growth in the decade since its spin-off from Baxter, Edwards has found its sweet spot in its own backyard: heart valves. Through an aggressive early acquisition, the company has emerged as the leader in what looks to be the next major device product market: - transcatheter valves.
