DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 28, 2016 — Cardinal Health today announced several new strategic distribution agreements that will enable Cordis, Cardinal Health’s interventional vascular business, to rapidly expand its product portfolio in select countries globally. These distribution agreements, which add coronary stents and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) balloon catheters, expand Cordis’ portfolio of innovative products that support the treatment of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) from access to intervention and closure.
Cordis and Cardinal Health will showcase their competitive and value-based product and services offering, significantly expanded through these new innovative distribution collaborations, at the 28th Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT), the annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, held October 29 – November 2 in Washington, D.C. (booth #1306).
“In the past year, since becoming a Cardinal Health company, we have executed several key strategic collaborations that strengthen the Cordis product and solutions offering in interventional cardiology,” said David Wilson, president of Cordis. “We strongly believe that agreements like these provide the opportunity to rapidly expand our portfolio and deliver increased value to customers around the world. We will continue to explore additional opportunities to broaden the global Cordis offering.”

Our vision is to make significant contributions to the healthcare system by bringing value-based products and solutions that our customers and their patients are seeking,” said Wilson.
