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.
