I am very proud to be speaking at two events. The luncheons are hosted by Family Office Networks. Hence, I am presenting both presentations regarding how my company, Advanced Bifurcation Systems has created the only stenting technology that will cover all types of bifurcations.
The first engagement is on September 27th at The Barrel Room in San Francisco. The topic is the Paradigm Shift in Interventional Cardiology. You can RSVP here.
Likewise, the second engagement is on October 17th at Lucques in West Hollywood. In turn, the topic for this one is Bifurcation Disease for a Disruptive Technology; How the Mother-Daughter Solution for all bifurcations. You may RSVP here.
Proud to Have Dick Cheney With Us
We are very much looking forward to our exhibit at the tct2018 convention in San Diego. My company Advanced Bifurcation Systems is proud to have Dick Cheney join us at our booth.
The convention is put on by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. Located at the San Diego Convention Center on September 21st through the 25th.
CVD is the Worlds Leading Killer…By Far
Cardiovascular disease is our number one public health challenge and more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause. The World Health Organization estimates that 17.7 million people died from CVDs in 2015. This is nearly third of all global deaths. This includes an estimated 7.4 million deaths from coronary heart disease and 6.7 million from stroke.
Innovation Is the engine for Change and Investors and Entrepreneur provide the Fuel and Spark
Advanced Bifurcation Systems has developed a novel, potentially revolutionary mother-daughter coronary stenting platform that has the potential to reduce the duration of stenting procedures, improve the reliability of bifurcation disease stenting and simplify the procedure for practitioners. So I am presenting at noon this Thursday, August 23rd in at the 2018 Southern California Investor Conference. The conference will be at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach. I am expecting up to 300 investors will come and hear about the opportunity.
Analysts report that the coronary stent market is expected to reach $10B in 2025. Bifurcation disease could be about 25% of this market. ABS represents a great opportunity for family office investors who seek to make a real impact on the future of healthcare. So as Family Office Networks Founder Andrew Schneider recently put it, “We believe ABS is poised to capture a significant part of this $2.5B market as the only true and complete bifurcating stent delivery platform in the market.”
I hope you will join us

Please join us, you can RSVP here.
Technological Innovations Give Hope in the Fight Against Heart Disease
From apps that diagnose irregular heart rhythms to fitbits with sensors to measure heart rate, a wave of heart technological innovations has appeared as companies cash in on the battle to fight heart disease.
The question always arises of how accurate the results are from a medical point of view. When it comes to measuring blood pressure and more on devices we use every day, like smartphones, there definitely needs to be more research. For example, readings could be influenced by motion, consistent contact with the skin, etc.
Smartphone Blood Pressure Check
Last year Caltech showed that a smartphone app could accurately measure how much blood the hearts pumps with each beat. In turn, all patients had to do was hold a smartphone camera up to their neck for less than two minutes, and an algorithm in the app analyzed the information. This was found to be as accurate as doing an ultrasound.
Other Heart Technological Innovations
Artificial intelligence is changing the way cardiac disease is being handled because of the way data can be absorbed, processed and analyzed. When it comes to healthcare, this can make all the difference in the way patients are diagnosed and treated.
For instance, cardiologists are able to read and interpret the results of echo studies more quickly and efficiently. Catching heart disease early and treating it efficiently is more possible when using AI.
Our dual catheter system is another technological innovation that I hope will bring about a revolution in the way heart disease is treated. Patients will no longer have to undergo lengthy, complex operations. The interventional cardiologist will be able, and the patient will be out the same day.
At present we seem to be losing the fight against heart disease, but technological innovations could make a difference. They have the potential to change cardiac healthcare for the better by addressing current limitations.
Honor Those Who Protect Our Country
Happy Independence Day! The weather in Newport is going to be sunny and pleasant. I am planning on some classic summer activities with family and friends. On July 4th nighttime, we will catch a glimpse of the huge display happening a little further from us.
Like Memorial Day, July 4th did have a more serious tone when I was young. The 20th Century was focused on major global conflict and the risk of all out catastrophe. Our relative peace allows us to take our freedom for granted, even in a world still filled with dangers.
Keeping Terrorists From Crossing
As President Trump points out, a free society depends upon the rule of law and keeping criminals and terrorists from crossing our borders.
Reminding myself of this, I feel passionately about remembering those who sacrifice and risk themselves to keep our country free. So, when we enjoy the company of our loved ones I think about how it must feel to be deployed abroad or along the most dangerous parts of our southern border. Imagine saying goodbye to your loved ones and knowing they will put themselves in harm’s way to protect us all.
Our Independence on July 4th
PBS has a great short video collection, “Stories of Service”, one of which is titled “The Homefront: Raising a Family”. This episode focuses on a man whose wife was deployed. Like a single parent, he assumed the roles of both Mom and Dad to their three kids. These videos highlight that that like our armed service members, military families sacrifice as well. I would like to see a similar piece on the risks and dangers that our brave ICE officers face.
So, this July Fourth remember to support the troops and law enforcement on our border and everywhere by honoring their families who have and continue to sacrifice for America. We need to appreciate, respect and honor these families alongside their loved ones who have or are serving.
MaRS Accepts ABS
My company, Advanced Bifurcations Systems has been accepted to join MaRS. MaRS helps bring all avenues of entrepreneurs and startups together with an extensive network of partners all together. Their goal is to bring new companies reach their their goals.

The Possibility of Outpatient
One of the most traumatic things a person can go through is open heart surgery. My mission is to help people understand that there could be options.
Heart surgery, among being traumatic, is also very very expensive. My company, Advanced Bifurcation Systems, created a device, that for many, is an outpatient procedure.
Our company has received patents and we have applied for FDA approval. We need to make sure people understand that there could be options. Open Heart surgery may not be needed.

Picked Up by Accesswire
Getting the word out about the good things your company is doing can be especially hard. We had a press release that got pick up for an Accesswire press article.
This is a good sign that we have had some engagement in our words. Check out This Accesswire article here. Article has highlights of what my company has in the works.
I have been in the corporate sector for decades now. My company now is one that I am extremely proud of and continue to look for ways to evolve. I very much want to continue to strive making progress.
Press Article for Heart Disease
People need to understand that there could be another way then open heart surgery. This extremely invasive way to deal with blockage of the heart has a very long recovery and a hefty hospital bill.
Our new technology has saved many people from this type of event in their lives. I know that if we can get the word out on this device then our family and friends will live longer in our lives. This procedure is an outpatient procedure which also alleviates a very large portion of the hospital bill.
