AHA Scientific Sessions 2011

The American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions 2011 attracted nearly 20,000 attendees (8,103 domestic; 7,467 professional) to Orlando, Fla., from November 12–15, 2011, with its program of cutting-edge research on clinical and interventional cardiology. Key sessions reflect the continued elusiveness of broadly successful drug trials, a drug-eluting balloon trial showing that less might be more, and an analysis suggesting that giving free drugs to patients saves money in the long run.
