Business Concept

Opportunity to expand

In a market where there has been considerable effort to increase the size and scope of the offerings across multiple specialties and where there has been significant consolidation at the Large Cap and Mid Cap Level Q3 Medical believes there is a significant opportunity to expand its competitive base through the organic growth of its existing businesses and through acquisitions.

Our vision

Q3 Medical is focused on opportunities that will accelerate the expansion of its core manufacturing base as well as enhanced capabilities for innovative developments, distribution channel expansion, and accelerated product offering for patients with cardiology, peripheral vascular and non-vascular diseases.


Q3 Medical believes that the global market is dependent on 3 main drivers for strategic success:
1. Developing innovative solutions that can drive cost from the healthcare system while increasing capacity while providing a high quality product at a reasonable price.
2. Relationship with the triangle if influence (Finance, Care Givers, and Patients) play an ever increasing role in success.

Q3 Medical plans to leverage its capabilities in innovation, channel management, and acquisition to insure its long term success.


Competitive Opportunity

Q3 Medical believes it has a competitive advantage through its owned companies through the:
1. Introduction of a wide ranging technology platform with enhanced capabilities across the large clinical market in the 20 Billion + market for interventional Cardiology, Radiology/Peripheral Vascular, and Non Vascular products.
2. Versatility and innovation in its manufacturing base to develop technology that can reduce cost of care.
3. Leveraging of its global relationships and those of its current and future channel partners who have been left with limited product choice opportunities due channel consolidations resulting from large cap and mid cap channel acquisitions.

Growth Targets

The company expects to see organic grow through the introduction of new technology offering of its owned companies and through acquisitions that will accelerate its growth focused on expanding its core manufacturing base as well as enhanced capabilities for innovative developments, distribution channel expansion, and accelerated product offering for the minimally invasive treatment of patients with cardiology, peripheral vascular, and non-vascular diseases.

Interventional Cardiology

  • Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases. The main advantages of using the interventional cardiology or radiology approach are the avoidance of the scars and pain, and long post-operative recovery.

    Additionally, interventional cardiology procedure of primary angioplasty is now the gold standard of care for an acute myocardial infarction. It involves the extraction of clots from occluded coronary arteries and deployment of stents and balloons through a small hole made in a major artery, which has given it the name "pin-hole surgery" (as opposed to "key-hole surgery").

Intervention Radiology / Peripheral Vascular

  • Interventional radiology is a medical sub-specialty of radiology which utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The concept behind interventional radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes.

    As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, interventional radiologists pioneered modern minimally-invasive medicine. Using X-rays, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging modalities, interventional radiologists obtain images which are then used to direct interventional instruments throughout the body. These procedures are usually performed using needles and narrow tubes called catheters, rather than by making large incisions into the body as in traditional surgery.

Interventional Non Vascular

  • Non-vascular interventions are minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures that do not involve blood vessels. The physician uses imaging technology to guide instruments inside the body without open surgery.

    Interventional radiologists often use ultrasound and CT scans to guide catheter (tube) placement to drain abscesses and other fluid collections. Imaging technology is also used for biopsies of deep tumors in the chest, abdomen and pelvis.
