CTI Clinical Trial & Consulting Services Announces Five Abstracts Presented at ISPOR 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE [Cincinnati, OH ~ July 13, 2016] 

CTI Clinical Trial and Consulting Services (CTI) announces that five abstracts were presented at the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics Outcomes Research (ISPOR) early this summer on behalf of Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI360), a large medical device company.

“This was an incredible series of projects and our team really enjoyed working with Cardiovascular Systems. We shared similar goals and timelines to develop an important research platform which generated evidence that could significantly improve the outcomes of patients with peripheral artery disease and potentially salvage limbs that would be amputated per standard practice.” says Lynn Fallon, CTI President.

Harry Kotlarz, Cardiovascular Systems, stated, “I don’t ever recall in my career where we formulated a series of study hypotheses and in 5 months, had 5 abstracts delivered and submitted, only to be followed by 5 acceptances!  It is unheard of…and is the result of a talented and hard-working and visionary team – I am humbled to be a part of it – thank you!” The senior director also added, “I am most excited because our evidence generation strategy is paving the way towards an even greater awareness of PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease) and limb salvage opportunities for the patients we serve.”

The list of abstracts presented included:

  • An Incremental Cost Analysis of Orbital Atherectomy Plus Angioplasty Compared to Angioplasty Alone for the Treatment of Critical Limb Ischemia
  • Impact of a Limb Salvage Program on the Economic Burden of Amputation in the United States
  • Racial Disparities in Amputation Rates among Native Americans with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD): Analysis of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Database
  • Racial Disparities in Amputation Rates for Patients with Peripheral Artery Disease:  Long-term Trends and Projections to 2020 
  • Racial Disparities in Amputation Rates for the Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) using the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Database
