Interventional Cardiology Research Team recruit 100th patient

9 March 2016

Congratulations to the Leeds Interventional Cardiology Research Team, who celebrated recruiting their 100th patient into the UK led heart study known as the ERIC -PPCI Trial, last week. 

Leeds is currently the highest UK recruiter for this important trial which looks at a novel strategy that may help, if proven, to further reduce damage to the heart muscle whilst a patient is having a heart attack and undergoing emergency treatment with a primary percutaneous coronary angioplasty.

Research success

Research plays a massive part in what we do here at LTHT and studies like this help us to be at the forefront of medical science and mean we can provide the very best patient care possible.
