Research & Clinical Trials
Salinas Valley Memorial is dedicated to cardiac research. Clinical trials
give our cardiologists and their patients access to progressive forms
of treatment, typically two to four years before they are available to
the general public. Clinical trials are used to refine various types of
treatments, including surgical procedures, catheterization procedures
and devices for people with heart disease. Our research stands to benefit
all cardiologists and patients by improving diagnosis and treatment.
Salinas Valley Memorial is currently participating in several research
studies, some of which are enrolling new patients. Participants are selected
for each trial based on specific criteria such as age, gender, type of
heart condition, and other factors.
