Pacemakers and defibrillators can save lives by regulating uncontrolled heartbeats. But each device operates in very different ways.
Learn about three medical innovations that relate to the human heart, including the development of a small leadless pacemaker, new cholesterol-lowering injections and a new congestive heart failure drug.
A new generation of miniaturized pacemakers can speed up slow hearts without the wires that may break or become infected.

A Cleveland Clinic patient with a slowed heartbeat is the third in the nation to receive the device as part of an international, multicenter clinical trial testing its safety and efficacy for FDA approval.
Roy Greenberg, MD, combined clinical skills with engineering insights to prevent catastrophic aortic aneurysms. He will be remembered fondly by patients and colleagues.
Warfarin thins your blood, helping prevent blood clots and stroke. Should you stop taking it before device surgery, or keep taking the prescribed amount? Results from a recent study reveal what to do, and why.
