Beacon Hospital Selected to Participate in Cardiac Clinical Trial

Beacon Hospital together with Professor Jonathan Lyne, Director of Electrophysiology, are delighted to announce that we have been selected as one of only 12 cardiac centres of excellence in the world to take part in a ground-breaking clinical trial.

We are the only centre in Ireland to be selected. The other 11 selected centres are located in the USA and the UK. The trial is working on a new type of Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy (CRT) for heart failure patients. This technique utilises the hearts own electrical wiring system known as conduction system pacing.

Congratulations to Prof Lyne and all in Beacon Hospital’s Cath Lab, Clinical Trials and Research Institute teams.

This is Modern Medicine.
