Oklahoma Heart Institute cardiologists attend the largest educational conference for interventional cardiology in the world this week at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Conference in Miami, Fl. The conference is an opportunity for recent trials, studies and reviews of trials to be presented from around the world, alongside live televised cases showcasing the latest in medical advances and cutting-edge technology.
With three weeks to go before the Tulsa Run, we asked Oklahoma Heart Institute cardiologist and runner, Dr. Kyle Zimmerman to share how we should be preparing in this final stage of training.
For more than three decades Glenda Findley has been wondering. “You always think, is this it?” Glenda says of her husband’s heart disease. Although there would not be days she could forget regardless of when they occurred, Glenda’s husband, E.G., has suffered heart attacks on their wedding anniversary, his birthday and again right before Christmas day. He had his first heart attack at the age of 38. His co-workers convinced him to go to the ER in Cleveland, because he wasn’t feeling right. After a stress test, he was transferred to Hillcrest Medical Center.
