Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute offers the patient-friendly care you’d expect from a smaller, community hospital and the quality and cutting-edge research of a major academic medical center. Our patients have access to new technology years before they would at other regional hospitals, giving them more treatment options. Most of our trials focus on less invasive tests and procedures that treat patients without traditional surgery.

Since our founding in 1987, Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute has been dedicated to improving cardiovascular treatment through clinical trials. With our robust research program, our patients gain access to cutting-edge technology and new treatments not available at other area hospitals.

We participate in clinical trials that we believe will benefit our patients and our community by changing the state of healthcare today. Our team focuses on studying next-generation technology and minimally invasive treatments that can improve outcomes and the quality of life for patients.

Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute physicians participate in clinical research involving many different diseases and treatments. We also work closely with researchers throughout Baptist Health to improve treatment for cancer, thoracic (lung) conditions and more.

Patient Benefits

Through our clinical research, we aim to provide patients with more minimally invasive treatment options that:

  • Improve outcomes
  • Reduce hospital stay time
  • Shorten recovery time
  • Improve quality of life
  • 30+

    studies of minimally invasive devices and procedures.
  • 50

    clinical trials in all areas of cardiovascular care

Cardiovascular Clinical Trials

We offer more than 50 clinical trials in all areas of cardiovascular care, including national clinical trials organized through the National Institutes of Health. This national participation requires that our research and our facilities meet a high standard of quality, which translates to better outcomes and care for our patients.

Patient Protection

To protect our patients, every clinical trial undergoes rigorous review by the Baptist Health South Florida Institutional Review Board.  Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute has a dedicated research department that coordinates trials and works directly with patients enrolled in studies.  For more information about all Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute research trials please contact us.
