50 Years of Cutting-Edge Research

THI Professional Staff Publications Word Cloud

The professional staff at THI averages over 30 papers a month. I enjoy looking at recent publications and can tell you they reflect the full range of cutting-edge research, from basic research to clinical trials. I was curious to know what the publication record said about THI’s accomplishments over the past 50 years. I pulled the records for over 3,000 first-author publications in MEDLINE and collected the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). The resulting word cloud shows the topics important to THI with word size roughly representing the number of times it was used. Heart-assist devices and heart transplantation are the two biggest. If you look closely, you’ll also see terms like coronary vessel anomalies, mitral valve, Texas, and cattle. For detailed citations, you can browse or search published research from the past five years in our database of Texas Heart Institute Professional Staff Publications. http://txhrt.org/profstaffpubs — Sonya
