BioTrace Medical Announces Key Activities at 2017 Transcatheter Valve Technologies

Tempo® Temporary Pacing Lead to be featured in New Technology Forum and Live Cases

BioTrace Medical, Inc., announced today the company’s key activities at the 2017 Transcatheter Valve Technologies (TVT) conference, June 14-17 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.

BioTrace Medical’s Tempo Temporary Pacing Lead is designed for secure and stable cardiac pacing with the goal of reducing complications and allowing patients to ambulate sooner after procedures such as transcatheter valve aortic replacement (TAVR) procedures. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2016, it is the only active fixation temporary pacing lead available in the U.S. The Tempo Lead features a novel active fixation mechanism, bipolar electrodes and a soft tip. This unique design mitigates the risks of dislodgement and perforation. The Lead ensures stability during rapid pacing and facilitates patient ambulation post-procedure, which can lead to a reduced length of hospital stay.

The Tempo Lead will be featured in the following presentations and events at TVT 2017:
