Triumph Catheter

  • Please Note
    Last week, a cross-functional team from the Project Management Office (PMO), Commercial Marketing, and Operations decided to move forward in finding a new third-party manufacturer for the Triumph™ Catheter. We’re actively evaluating multiple manufacturers, all being equally committed to meeting our strenuous quality standards and high volume expectations for Triumph – while also pursuing expedited timelines.

    As a result, the Limited Market Release (LMR) and Full Market Release (FMR) has been delayed. In the coming weeks anticipate more communications as commercialization timelines are formalized.

    Thank you for being nimble around the Triumph launch.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your Coronary Product Management Team.

Sales Wins

I want to take a moment and highlight some outstanding customer engagement by several members of the Mid-South region.

Clinician/physician engagement and education is one of our region’s top priorities in 2023 and these folks have truly taken that to heart. In just two months into Q2, with the help of the CMA team, the region has completed numerous physician/clinician engagements that range from educational events to proctorships. A few sales reps that truly standout are Matt Clayton, Nick McPherson, Kevin Daigle and Kent Copland. These individuals have brought tremendous value to industry leading physicians such as: Dr. Neupane from WakeMed in Raleigh, Dr. Borges from Atrium/Carolinas Healthcare System in Charlotte, and Dr. Leah Raj from Vanderbilt in Nashville. Topics/products educated on were GuideLiner® Coast® Catheter, Turnpike® Catheter, TrapLiner® Catheter and SuperCross Catheter. Matt, Nick, Kevin and Kent have gone above and beyond to help drive awareness around the incredibly important products we offer that improve patient’s lives.
