Redefining Stroke Prevention
The “Hole” Truth About Strokes with Unknown Causes
One-third of ischemic strokes have unknown causes; 40-50% of people who experience these strokes have a hole in their heart called a patent foramen ovale (PFO). With strong data on the connection between PFO and stroke from the Gore REDUCE Clinical Study and the FDA approval of its GORE® CARDIOFORM Septal Occluder for PFO closure, Gore is helping patients to significantly reduce the risk of experiencing another stroke.
Fuel Cell Vehicle with GORE-SELECT® Membranes
The Hyundai NEXO – Powered by Hydrogen
Hyundai’s latest fuel cell vehicle has already made a splash. Makes sense - its only emission is water. The hydrogen-powered NEXO Fuel Cell SUV debuted at the January 2018 CES® global innovation show in Las Vegas and will officially launch later this year. GORE-SELECT® Membranes contribute to the fuel cell stack’s increased power density while meeting strict requirements for durability and quality.
Helping Doctors Explain Treatments to Patients
Medical Device Augmented Reality App
We learn as children to point to our ears, nose, chin … not our iliac artery or descending aorta. Medical care can involve a crash-course in biology, so Gore launched the Gore Augmented Reality Experience App. By using high-tech interactive visuals to help doctors talk to patients about procedures, and help patients talk to their families, we’re working to improve experiences and outcomes.
