TEDMED and Boston Scientific

Postby cah » Wed Nov 04, 2009 2:04 pm


I just stumbled upon a very interesting article in a german science online magazine called "technology review":

http://www.heise.de/tr/artikel/Transpar ... 48684.html

It's about the TEDMED, an independent meeting of innovative medical professionals.


In this article, Boston Scientific is mentioned, a company that produces stents. On their website, I found this:

and this:

Especially their procedures for vascular deseases I found very interesting. Perhaps these procedures could be useful in case of CCSVI?

In the article, John Abele is mentioned, head of board of directors of boston Scientific. The translated paragraph is:

"A cooperation that does not only join subject areas but also wipes away the boundaries between doctor and patient is what John Abele is interested in. The Founder and head of board of directors of Boston Scientific, producer of stents and catheders, founded an education center for this. "Many medical scientists are, due to their specialisation, high-qualified nerds and not very open for trade-off", he said..."

My thoughts were that maybe someone should talk to him or to Boston Scientific, or perhaps to another open-minded person from the TEDMED board.

I hope I understood everything right. Really must admit that I'm having a hard time dealing with these medical phrases. It's not quite what you learn in english lessions in german schools. :wink:

What do you think? Could this be interresting?

I'll try to contact someone at Boston Scientific. I am a cochlear implant audiologist and Advanced Bionics (one of the cochlear implant companies) and Boston Scientific partnered for a while. I think they just separated but I am sure I can call someone at Advanced Bionics who can give me a contact name or number. Good find Cah...Ill let you know.
