In Part 1 of this year’s Technologies to Watch compilation, we include, in the cardiovascular space, transcatheter heart valves; the progress of TAVR in expanding into lower-risk groups of patients, and advances in mitral and tricuspid valve development; we examine spinal cord stimulation for chronic pain; how liquid biopsy is helping to drive precision medicine; the forward momentum of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery; and finally, how AI is reaching into medtech.
