Evaluation of Patients With Known or Suspected Heart Disease
In this study researchers will admit and evaluate patients with known or suspected heart disease referred to the Cardiology Branch of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
Patients participating in this study will undergo a general medical evaluation, including blood tests, urine, examination, chest x-ray and electrocardiogram (EKG). In addition, patients may be asked to have an echocardiogram (ultrasound scan of the heart) and to perform an exercise stress test.
These tests are designed to assess the types and causes of patient's heart diseases and to determine if they can participate in other, specific research studies.
