Coherex Medical Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company is recruiting for a Staff Accountant located in Salt Lake City, UT.


Coherex Medical, Inc. was founded by Dr. Brian Whisenant in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2003 to design, develop, and market innovative catheter-based technologies for the treatment of certain structural heart defects. 
The  Coherex WaveCrest™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure System (“WaveCrest”), addresses a large and unmet need to prevent strokes in patients suffering from a common heart condition known as atrial fibrillation (“AF”).  AF, the most commonly diagnosed heart rhythm disorder, is a disturbance of the normal heart rhythm in the upper chambers of the heart, resulting in poor or virtually no contraction of those chambers. This may cause blood to pool and not be ejected from a pouch attached to the left atrium called the left atrial appendage (“LAA”).
The addressable patient population for LAA closure with a catheter-based closure device in the U.S. and Europe is approximately 600,000 patients annually, representing a market opportunity of approximately $4.8 billion. The WaveCrest has significant advantages over other devices currently being used clinically.
