DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Aug. 27 Prescient Medical Inc. announced that CEO Patricia Scheller, appeared on FOX Business Network (FBN) to discuss the company's groundbreaking products and recent achievement of CE Mark approval for their vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield Stent System.
"The FOX Business News appearance is an important recognition of the increasing awareness of cardiovascular disease," stated Ms. Scheller. Each year, approximately 1.5 million Americans will have a heart attack and 650,000 will not survive, making it the leading cause of death in the US. It is estimated that the costs associated with treating heart attacks in the US are over $80 billion per year, or approximately $54,000 per patient, according to 2007 statistics. In addition to the significant financial expenses, the societal and personal costs of the disease are also substantial. "Our goal at Prescient is to ultimately provide the world's first products to stop heart attacks before they happen," she continued.
Ms. Scheller was featured on the "C-Suite Sit-Down" segment on Monday, August 24, 2009, broadcast at 6:40 AM (EDT) in the United States.
