For Patients

According to the latest report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cardiovascular diseases, including congestive heart failure, hypertension, atherosclerosis, stroke, vascular auto-immune disease, and heart failure, account for 40% of all annual deaths in the United States each year (1 death every 36 seconds). This year, these largely preventable diseases are projected to cost the nation over $430 billion in health care expenses and lost productivity from death and disability.

Finding effective new cardiovascular disease treatment methods is essential. The Einstein-Montefiore Cardiovascular Research Center is committed to conducting research that will reduce death rate and promote cardiovascular health.

Our faculty has a proven track record of groundbreaking discoveries. Current diseases under investigation include:

  • Arrhythmias, including Atrial Fibrillation, Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD), Brugada Syndrome, Long QT Syndrome, Short QT Syndrome, exercise induced
  • Ventricular Tachycardia
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Coronary Artery Disease
