Important advances made in the field of cardiology in the past year fall into three major disease categories, all of which are responsible for a disproportionate amount of death, disability, and cost in the United States and around the world. Congestive heart failure affects 1% of persons older than 65 years of age; acute coronary artery syndromes are the number one cause of death in the United States; and chronic coronary syndromes are increasingly responsible for hospitalizations, presumably because of the aging U.S. population and better survival after acute heart injuries.
