We are helping develop new treatments and finding ways to improve patient care.
As an academic health institution, and a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded center, we are at the forefront of developing cutting-edge research, and our patients have access to the latest clinical trials.
The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute is a leader in cardiovascular care and research in West Virginia. Our patients have access to the most current procedures and treatments. The experts at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute conduct ongoing heart and vascular clinical trials and research studies.
The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute Advanced Heart Failure team was the first in West Virginia to implant the Cordella® Pulmonary Artery Pressure Sensor System as part of the PROACTIVE-HF Pivotal Trial sponsored by Endotronix.
Our team of experts share in-depth information on many treatments and procedures available to patients.
