Heart and Vascular Clinical Trials

Access to the newest clinical trials available at premier academic medical centers is an important aspect of providing innovative care to our patients. Our cardiovascular medicine and surgery experts are leading clinical trials as national principal investigators in multi-institutional studies, bringing the therapies of tomorrow to UPMC today.

The UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute offers clinical trials in all sub-specialties of cardiovascular medicine and surgery, including heart failure, electrophysiology, heart valve disease, coronary artery disease, and more.

If you are considering participation in a clinical trial, it is important to:

  • Discuss your current health and risk factors with your cardiologist and care team to determine eligibility.
  • Ask your cardiologist to assist you in discussing the decision with family members and caregivers, so questions or concerns can be addressed.
  • Work with your doctor to sign and consent to trial treatment.
  • Remember that participation is voluntary. You may choose to or be asked to cease participation in the trial at any time.
