Our researchers and other UT colleagues patented a high-tech pacemaker that measures cardiac performance and signals early warning of heart problems.

Dr. Julio Palmaz, who invented the world's first stent at UT Health San Antonio, is honored at the National Inventors Hall of Fame. 

UT Health San Antonio conducts studies involving use of medical devices, gene therapy and echocardiography (ultrasound waves) to improve diagnosis and treatment, and to minimize the incidence of heart attack and heart failure.
