    • Breaking News - Based on success of a pilot study sponsored by Abbott Vascular’s Women’s Heart Health Initiative, SCAI WIN will now help launch a second phase of an OB/GYN patient screening study. The goal of the second phase study is to understand the potential impact and scalability of the screening tool, aimed at detecting heart disease in women during routine visits to their OB/GYN. The second phase will also look to better understand the link between heart disease and pregnancy complications. Read more HERE.
