Registry Of People At Risk For Heart Disease To Study Potential Causes Of Heart Attacks And Strokes


Volunteers who are at risk for having heart disease, taking aspirin, and will be or have already undergone a cardiac catheterization sought for a study of how the body makes blood clots and its effect on the risk for heart attack and stroke.


We are studying how the body makes blood clots that might cause heart attacks and strokes. Taking an aspirin can prevent cells in the blood from making blood clots, but we want to know if cells from other parts of the body that aren't affected by aspirin might make blood clots.

What we're hoping for

We hope to use the information from your blood, urine, and cells collected during your cardiac catheterization procedure to better understand how the body makes blood clot so we might better prevent heart attack and stroke.
