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.
