4Tech Brings Regulatory Expertise In-House

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Transcatheter heart valve repair specialist 4Tech Inc. has appointed Paul Cornelison vice-president of regulatory affairs, quality assurance & clinical affairs. Cornelison has over 25 years’ experience in medtech-related regulatory and clinical affairs. More recently, prior to joining 4Tech, he had worked in a couple of transcatheter mitral valve repair companies: CardiAQ Valve Technologies Inc., which was acquired by Edwards Lifesciences in July 2015, and Cardiac Dimensions Inc, one of the earliest percutaneous mitral valve repair companies. Cornelison joins Galway, Ireland-based 4Tech just after the firm raised $29m in a series B financing round to help complete a feasibility study of its TriCinch transcatheter tricuspid valve repair system. The study results will be used to support approval to CE mark the device, said to be the only one fully focused on the tricuspid valve.
