Cardiologist and serial entrepreneur Frank Litvack, best known for founding Conor Medsystems, has picked his first opportunity in interventional structural heart disease. Litvack has co-founded Entourage Medical Technologies Inc. to develop products that support transcatheter interventions for the heart. Entourage is beginning with a transapical access and closure device with the goal of advancing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), enabling minimally invasive mitral valve replacement and repairs, and other minimally invasive treatments for patients with structural heart disease.
