Cappella: Can a New Twist On An Old Idea Solve the Bifurcation Challenge?
Device companies large and small have failed repeatedly in efforts to address bifurcations, which remain one of the largest unmet opportunities in cardiology. Cappella thinks it can solve the problem with a device that's a new version of an old idea, reversing current protocol to treat the side branch first.
