Cardiovascular disease is a silent killer. Forty-one percent of deaths in the United States each year are attributable to the complications of cardiovascular disease. These include strokes, ruptured aneurysms and heart attacks. At Keck Hospital of USC, we have long led the field in the study, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
