VANCOUVER, BC / February 13, 2018 / CVR Medical Corp. (TSX.V: CVM.V) (FRANKFURT: B3BN) (OTCQB: CRRVF) ('CVR Medical') announces placement of two additional wireless Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS) devices into clinical trials at historic Methodist Hospital, part of the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital System. This deployment will be combined with the three wireless CSS devices already in use across the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital footprint. This critical milestone will assist in increasing the volume of clinical substantiation data to be used in the upcoming FDA submission to acquire market clearance.
The historic Methodist Hospital campus is located in the heart of south Philadelphia, having provided care since its doors opened in 1892. Over a century later, it now stands as a landmark of the Philadelphia landscape, boasting a bed count of over two hundred. In 1996, Methodist Hospital became a division of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
'When entering Methodist Hospital one cannot help but feel as though they are walking into a part of history,' states CVR COO Tony Robinson. 'From its inception in the late 1800's, to the support of world war II troops, to the renowned nursing school once located on the premise; I like to think we are adding to this line of accomplishment in bringing the trial to the Methodist site. I hope looking back, the CSS is another feather in the hat of the historic locale.'
