The Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic participates in a wide range of research studies and large randomized controlled trials, which help guide evidence-based patient care and national practice standards.
We are currently enrolling cardiovascular medicine and surgery patients for clinical trials that look at ways to improve the care of patients. You may qualify to take part in a trial that tests different methods of treatment, such as surgical procedures, devices or new medicines.
"Clinical trial" is the scientific term for a test or study that evaluates new surgical procedures, devices or medicines. Clinical trials are done to see if these procedures can safely and effectively treat or cure disease. Doctors and other health professionals conduct clinical trials according to strict rules set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
To help you decide if you want to participate in a clinical trial, you will be given complete information about the study before you agree to take part. This is known as informed consent. Participation in a trial is completely voluntary. If you do not wish to participate, your decision will not affect your care or treatment at Cleveland Clinic.
In this section, you will learn about Clinical Trials, C5Research, the Vascular Surgery Academic Research Organization and Core Labs at the Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute.
The Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute serves as a clinical research resource for patients, researchers, and healthcare professionals around the globe.
