Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute Grand Rounds – Miami Heart Study

October 18, 2023

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, and accounts for a large share of total healthcare expenditure. While CVD risk assessment in general has been traditionally guided by risk estimates derived from scores combining traditional risk factors, there is a growing body of evidence showing that such an approach lacks sufficient accuracy in predicting risk of future events among asymptomatic individuals.

Target Audience

Cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, echocardiographers, pulmonologists, hematologists, general internists, primary care physicians, intensivists, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory technologists and other interested healthcare providers.

Learning Objectives

  • Assess and characterize the presence and severity of subclinical cardiovascular disease (CVD) burden among middle-aged asymptomatic individuals.
  • Determine the relationships and interplay of traditional risk factors, lifestyle and behavioral factors as well as biomarkers (traditional and novel) related to the presence and burden of subclinical CVD among middle-aged asymptomatic individuals.
  • Apply population-based methods of screening for cardiovascular risk among middle-aged asymptomatic persons. 
  • Utilize cost-effective resources for early CVD management.
