Since Cardiology Today was launched 20 years ago in 1997, not only has the prognosis for patients with heart disease vastly changed, but so has the practice of cardiology.
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.
