Since 2013, the New York Cardiac Center (NYCC) has, in conjunction with the Michael Wolk Heart Foundation, supported a series of cardiac centered research projects aimed at investigating the efficacy of a number of treatment modalities.  These efforts have been centered at the Weill-Cornell Medical Center (WCM) and have resulted in a plethora of exciting peer reviewed and published studies which have clearly advanced our knowledge in the field of cardiology.  Now, these studies have prompted the launching of the Weill-Cornell Cardiovascular Outcomes Research Group (CORG).  The CORG is led by Associate Professors of Medicine Luke Kim, MD, FACC, FSCAI and Jim Cheung, MD, FACC, FHRS.

Several recently published papers include:

Rate of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for the Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes and Stable Coronary Disease in the United States;

Comparison of Trends and Outcomes of Carotid Artery Stenting and Endarterectomy in the United States;

Association Between Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantion Volume and Outcomes in the United States;

Trends in Hospital Treatments for Peripheral Arterial Disease in the United States and Association Between Payer Status and Quality of Care/Outcomes, 2007-2011;

Comparison of Trends and In-Hospital Outcomes of Concurrent Carotid Artery Revascularization and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery; The United States Experience 2004 to 2012

Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction: Insights on a Unique Clinical Phenotype from a Nationally-Representative United States Cohort

The NYCC is pleased to have been associated with this wonderful research and looks forward to additional insights which will be provided by the WCM CORG.
