We’re back! Join co-hosts Paul Heney and Aimee Kalnoskas, who return with another exciting episode of R&D 100 – The Podcast. Episode 5 is now live!
With this episode, Paul and Aimee delve into the incredible technology behind Abbott’s Amplatzer Piccolo Occluder, a 2020 R&D 100 Award winner. This is a self-expanding, wire mesh device that is inserted through a small incision in a newborn’s leg and guided through vessels to the heart. There, it fixes a problem called patent ductus arteriosus. Hear more about how this technology came to be — and how it’s working in the real world.
