Division of Cardiology

Division of Cardiology

Heart disease, which has appeared differently in the social and economical aspects as having experienced industrialization since 1980’s, has shown a westernized trend and accordingly, has become the essential area of internal medicine.

The Division of Cardiology at the Yonsei University Health System has taken a leading role in the cardiovascular diseases of Korea from the early days to the present. In the future, the Division of Cardiology can be more helpful to the patients of heart disease through more active clinical therapies as well as basic studies of various cardiovascular diseases such as arteriosclerosis, mechanism for restenosis of coronary angioplasty, development of stent, stem cell grafting, hyperlipidemia and arrhythmia.
