What do you get when you mix Tour de France and Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics? Avinger.

Avinger debuts at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in San Francisco this week with a little Mortar magic and pro cyclist Christian Vande Valde.

Mortar’s design team is helping Avinger bust into the world-famous TCT conference with a magnificent booth (Booth #1536) and some pretty sweet jackets to match.

Avinger will host a TCT Breakfast Meeting on Friday November 11 at 6:30 AM transmitting a case live from Germany highlighting a Chronic Total Occlusion Crossing using the Direction OCT Guided CTO Catheter, Ocelot.

Hosting the case live will be Dr. Arne Schwindt and Avinger CEO John B. Simpson, PhD, MD. Our own Todd Ransick will be eating bratwurst while streaming the feed from Munster, Germany to the event here in San Francisco.

Pro cyclist Christian Vande Valde will also be a guest speaker at the breakfast, drawing the connection between the spinning wheels of pro bikes and the spinning tip of the Ocelot catheter.

On Saturday, November 11, 2011, Christian will join Avinger and all attendees of the TCT Breakfast Meeting who wish to participate in a bike ride in Woodside, CA to promote PAD awareness through physical activity.

Avinger is excited to be a part of TCT, an event that pays homage to industry leaders who are dedicated to improving the survival and quality of life for people with cardiovascular disease through research and education.

And Mortar is excited, well, that Todd’s eating bratwurst.
