As a key exhibitor from Shanghai, MicroPort® showcased its innovative products and total medical solutions covering various fields such as cardiovascular and structural heart disease, electrophysiology and cardiac rhythm management system, orthopedics, aorta and peripheral vascular disease, and neuro intervention. The new-generation home-grown Firehawk®️ stent is considered by industry experts to have solved a major problem that has been troubling the field of cardiovascular intervention for over a decade. In 2018, study results of the MicroPort® Firehawk Stent System in a large-scale clinical trial in Europe was published in full text under The Lancet, the world's top medical journal, which is the first time that a Chinese medical device was featured in the journal in nearly 200 years since its first publication, marking a follower-to-leader transformation for MicroPort® in the field of coronary stents. After gaining a strong foothold in domestic and international markets in the field of coronary stents, MicroPort® entered the field of cardiac radiofrequency ablation and developed the first domestic 3D EP Navigation System based on magneto-electric dual positioning, with the aim of providing a total solution for heart diseases. Shortly afterwards, MicroPort® rolled out the first domestic pacemaker with world-class quality, which better suits the lean body type of Chinese patients with a 10- to 12-year lifespan, making the domestic pacemaker available to more and more Chinese patients. In the era of minimally invasive surgery for structural heart disease, MicroPort® has pioneered the technical pathway to heart valve replacement by interventional therapy. Its subsidiary, CardioFlow Medtech, which focuses on the innovative development and commercialization of transcatheter and surgical solutions in the field of heart valve disease, has been listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in February 2021. In the field of aorta and peripheral vascular disease, MicroPort® Endovastec has become one of the first companies to be listed on the STAR board, offering a total solution in this segment with five home-grown products entering the “Green Path” for innovative medical devices. In the field of neuro intervention, MicroPort® NeuroTech aims to be a “total solution provider for cerebral apoplexy” and has developed numerous innovative products that are the first and only in China. In the field of orthopedics, the Medial-Pivot Knee System by MicroPort® Orthopedics has been used in more than 720,000 implantation cases worldwide, with proven high prosthesis retention rate (98.8%) and patient satisfaction (95%) from more than two decades of clinical use.
