    VOLC - Volcano Corporation Announces Presentations at Upcoming Investor Con...

    Listened to the presentation. Very well done. Apparently the reimbursement system in the US has been an obstacle in the past, encouraging over-stenting. That's changing. VERY interesting that interventional cardiologists have shifted from 80% independent to 80% hospital-based over the past 5 years.

    Move to Costa Rica for manufacturing will impose 1 year of margin decrease, but is anticipated to raise margins 5% in 3 years.

    I hadn't realized that avoiding the need for blood volume expansion makes IFR applicable to a significantly larger number of patients than FFR.
