We have unmatched expertise in cardiovascular research, a space that demands a high technical standard. In addition, we also regularly complete studies in ophthalmology, thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedics, gastroenterology, dentistry, urology, fetal surgery and surgical robotics.
We are a worldwide leader in GLP-compliant cardiovascular preclinical studies conducted in large animal models. TAVI and TMVR were literally born in our lab 20 years ago. Since our creation, we have performed 2500 TAVI and 1400 TMVR procedures. We have conducted studies with virtually all TAVI valves and TMVR technologies that have been acquired and brought to market by the major MedTech players.
Our work includes significant numbers of both catheter-based and open surgical approaches. We have all the facilities and equipment necessary to do those procedures correctly and efficiently. Examples include hybrid operating rooms, endoscopy and videoscopy towers, CT scanning and intracardiac echocardiography imaging and cardiopulmonary bypass equipment and capabilities.
Our passion to provide value according to the highest standards of quality is not limited to cardiovascular research. For years, we have been leveraging our expertise to conduct complex studies in many other disease areas:
