Cardiovascular Conditions

The complex nature of heart disease requires an expansive body of knowledge. Physician-scientist collaborations advance cardiovascular research to ensure everything Mayo Clinic does is grounded in the pursuit of answers for our patients with challenging cardiovascular conditions.

In spite of new technologies and disease-prevention strategies, nearly 1 in 4 people in the United States die from heart disease. With a deep bench of research activities and a comprehensive medical practice, Mayo Clinic improves the science of heart care to save more lives.

Our Vision

Mayo Clinic is a global authority in cardiovascular medicine. We solve the most serious cardiovascular challenges, one patient at a time. Guided by our core principles, we will change the natural progression of heart disease so people around the world will live longer, healthier lives.

As a humanitarian organization committed to inspiring hope and healing, Mayo's focus on our patients will never change. The ways we serve our patients, however, must constantly evolve as we continue to provide comprehensive and compassionate heart care.

To do this, we must build on the existing body of science and expand our cardiovascular clinical trials to advance care for these patients. This empowers our experts to rapidly translate medical research into new tests and treatments across the spectrum of cardiovascular disease.

The Solution

Our integrated cardiovascular medicine research programs each have a role in bringing new discoveries to patient care. Collectively, these programs are engaged in more than 200 clinical trials to investigate structural heart disease, circulatory failure, vascular disease, ischemic heart disease, heart rhythm disturbances, cardiac regeneration and more. Significant developments continue to occur in many areas, with a growing number of less invasive and more remote ways to treat some of the most difficult heart conditions.

What further sets Mayo Clinic apart from other academic medical centers is our emphasis on team-based translational science. Heart surgeons, cardiologists, cardiovascular researchers, educators and allied health professionals work compassionately and innovatively to find answers for the patients and families who depend on us. The time is right to accelerate our work and improve the world standard in heart care.

Generous gifts from Mayo patients, families and friends empower our ability to advance the practice of cardiovascular medicine through medical discovery, entrepreneurship and innovation. The health care landscape is changing, and we are leading the way because visionary benefactors like you are committed to setting a new world standard in heart care. Give today.
