HEART AND VASCULAR RESEARCH
Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the
United States, but hope is on the horizon. Researchers are developing
novel surgical and medical therapies that hold the promise of saving lives
and improving patients’ quality of life at the time of surgery and
for the months and years beyond. As a leader in cardiovascular healthcare,
the Lynn Heart and Vascular Institute scientists are exploring a variety
of methods — such as advanced medical devices and minimally invasive
techniques — that could revolutionize cardiovascular surgery by
bringing new and innovative therapies to our patients.
Our cardiovascular research initiatives are focused in a number of interdisciplinary
areas .These include cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, electrophysiology
and general cardiology. Our researchers, many who are also part of our
clinical staff, are engaged in number of FDA approved clinical trials
in collaboration with other academic institutions and select industry
partners. Several of the studies are physician-initiated and are only
available at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
It is our commitment at the Office of Cardiovascular Clinical Research
to offer our patients an opportunity to participate in a state-of-the-art
