News & Events

  • Innovation in Carotid Artery Stenting

    Patients with carotid artery narrowing had been limited to endarterectomy or stenting, however a new approach allows for comparable results with less risk.

  • Stenting as effective as carotid endarterectomy for preventing strokes in asymptomatic patients

    The most modern clinical trial to compare the use of carotid-artery stenting with carotid endarterectomy for the prevention of strokes in asymptomatic patients with serious narrowing of the carotid artery finds no significant differences in outcomes between the two procedures over a period of up to five years.

  • First U.S.-based trial supports the effectiveness of a drug-coated balloon for patients with PAD

    In January 2015, the U.S. FDA approved the use of a drug-coated balloon to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD) based on research spearheaded by Kenneth Rosenfield, MD, and Michael R. Jaff, DO.

  • Harnessing the power of PERT

    The MGH recently hosted a scientific symposium, “Pulmonary Embolism: What Is Known, What We Need To Know” to discuss improvements in PE detection, care coordination and patient management.

  • Boston Hospital Trio Awarded $25 Million NIH Grant to Study Critical Limb Ischemia

    A team of researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston Medical Center and MGH has been awarded $25 million by the National Institutes of Health to conduct a clinical trial comparing traditional bypass surgery with a less invasive treatment alternative for patients with critical limb ischemia.

  • Novel Therapeutic Strategies for Systemic Cardiovascular Disease

    Experts from the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Heart, Vascular and Stroke Care present a dynamic symposium on systemic cardiovascular disease.

  • Seconds count

    MGH Hotline 4.1.11 From the time a person first experiences symptoms of a heart attack, such as shortness of breath or chest discomfort, to the time he or she undergoes cardiac catheterization -- a procedure used to diagnose and treat a blocked coronary artery -- every second is of utmost importance.

  • VIVA Las Vegas

    Mass General Heart & Vascular Center physicians perform demonstrations of complex vascular interventions for an educational conference in Las Vegas.

  • Stents and surgery both safe for prevention of stroke, study says

    Investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital revealed the results of the CREST trial, a study that looked at the efficacy of carotid endarterectomy versus stenting in patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis, and found that these two medical procedures are both equally safe and effective.

  • Miracle patient revived after 57 minutes

    Mass General Hospital physician, Kenneth Rosenfield, MD, attributes Laura Geraghty's heart attack recovery to immediate and effective CPR. Now Rosenfield and Geraghty are advocating for CPR instruction in Massachusetts high schools.


  • Sean's Story: A Second Chance

    When Sean Sullivan arrived at the Emergency Department at Mass General, doctors immediately recognized the symptoms of a pulmonary embolism and activated the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT). With a single call, dozens of Mass General doctors from different specialties were notified of his condition and quickly discussed a treatment plan.
