New knowledge, technologies yield drastic changes in cardiology over 20 years
Cardiology Today, January 2017

Back then, cardiologist involvement occurred mainly when patients were seriously ill, often if they needed CABG or other heart surgery, if they needed PCI with or without bare-metal stenting, or if they had MI, or cardiac arrest. Another difference between then and now was that stroke was often the focus of only neurologists. The prognosis for most patients with HF was grim. Fewer people visited cardiologists for diagnostic testing or preventive strategies.
