CTL Medical Corporation (www.ctlmed.com) was established in 2015 by Daniel Chon, former president & CEO of AccelSPINE, with the vision of creating a fully integrated, industry leading, global medical device design, development and manufacturing company.
With that vision in mind, CTL Medical Corporation assembled a world class executive team, bringing together some of the industry’s most exceptional talent. That assembly of talent helped the company realize the recent acquisitions of both RF Precision Manufacturing, a Dallas based medical device manufacturer, and AccelSPINE, a nationally recognized medical device developer.
This combination of manufacturing and development resources further extends CTL Medical Corporation’s position as a leader in medical device design, manufacturing and service.

Pro Bono Media Relations for Baby Winslet Seoighe & Winslet’s Disease
19-month-old Winslet Seoighe was born via a life-saving emergency C-section October 5, 2009. She weighed just 4 pounds, 8 ounces, was resuscitated in the delivery room and was critically ill with only 33 percent of the blood volume she should have had. She was very sick, and her vital organs were shutting down. She fought her way back to health during a seven-week stay in the NICU, but there was one major lingering problem – Winslet was not making blood. Since then, she has had over 40 transfusions. At a loss for a diagnosis after sending her blood and biopsies literally around the world for testing – from the Mayo Clinic to Harvard to Yale to Johns Hopkins and, finally, to a specialty lab in Israel – doctors now refer to her condition as Winslet’s Disease.
Winslet's only chance for a cure was a life-saving bone marrow transplant. Winslet is one of the lucky ones – doctors found a 6/6 match from the National Marrow Donor Program cord blood bank. After eight days of intensive chemotherapy, Winslet received her bone marrow transplant February 3, 2011. She spent nearly 60 days in Medical City Dallas and recovered at home under home isolation. While doctors are optimistic, it will be up to two years before it is known if the transplant was a success. Medical costs were expected to be over $1.2 million and an estimated $500,000 in out-of-pocket, transplant-related expenses for the family.
TrizCom PR knew that the world needed to know about Baby Winslet and conducted a media relations campaign to help assist with her medical expenses.
