Emory cardiologists present research at AHA scientific sessions in New Orleans, Nov. 7 - 10

Could an enzyme produced by white blood cells in response to inflammation reveal hidden heart disease in patients with no symptoms? Do women referred for angioplasty have more symptoms and physical limitations due to angina than their male counterparts?

Could an infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae, known to cause a flu-like illness, be a contributing factor to advanced coronary atherosclerosis? Does being tall increase your risk of atrial fibrillation?
