Clinical research in cardiology
The Salem Health Heart and Vascular Center participates in both clinical and nursing research studies. This means we can offer patients within our community cutting-edge procedures and treatment options that otherwise would not be available locally.
Examples of clinical trials:
Carotid stent study for those at high risk for endarterectomy
Dual anti-platelet therapy study for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions
Gender differences in symptoms of acute coronary syndrome upon presentation to the ER
The Salem Health Institutional Review Board approves participation in all clinical research studies.
