Clinic Research


Arkansas Heart Hospital’s (AHH) Clinical Research Department is dedicated to providing comprehensive research support to assist sponsors and investigators by coordinating and facilitating clinical research studies.

For both patients and physicians, our clinical research trials allow the opportunity to gain access to the latest cutting edge technology and treatments before they are commonly available. Because AHH participates in a variety of clinical research trials, we often discover new and better ways to treat our patients. At AHH, clinical research is just another way we are working toward improving the future of cardiovascular care in Arkansas and around the world.


Arkansas Heart Hospital has provided 15 years of leadership in heart treatment technologies and is recognized nationally among manufacturers of cardiac devices and drugs as a leading provider of quality heart care. At AHH, we have often been the nation’s leading investigative site for various key research trials.  Our investigators have extensive experience conducting clinical research in the following therapeutic areas:

  • Coronary and peripheral stents, balloons, catheters and other therapeutic devices used in the cath lab
  • Pacemakers, defibrillators, and other devices and catheters used in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and the practice of electrophysiology
  • Various pharmaceutical agents used in providing a broad range of therapeutic cardiovascular care
