Medical Device Development in Cardiovascular Disease Clinical Trials

An interesting infographic illustrating the larger picture of cardiovascular disease (CVD) progression and the challenges faced by the medical device industry. 

 

As a lot of device manufacturers’ products are under efficacy scrutiny and cost pressure, the role of well-designed clinical trials proving economic and treatment benefits is mounting. 

 

At the same time the ability to confirm (or reject) theories connected with the design of a clinical trial depends to a large extent on the adherence of the cohort to the protocol: this is where simulators can play a vital role in aligning the actual intervention with the provided protocol.

 

Given the available metric data from simulator usage, even corrections to the protocol can be made – e.g. if it is apparent that 40% of a cohort use a device in a different way than the rest of the cohort, research companies may want to either run that group as a subgroup, or adjust the protocol such that the impact is minimized.
