Center for Coronary Artery Disease
The Center for Coronary Artery Disease is strongly positioned for success through:
- A partnership with 70+ cardiologists who see more than 31,000 patients at nearly 57,000 clinic visits each year at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and 36 outreach sites.
- An exceptionally large and diverse patient experience, complete with data contained within the electronic medical record as part of Allina Health.
- A proven track record of dissemination, publishing 63 journal articles (including peer-reviewed) in 2019, along with 25 poster presentations and 48 invited presentations at 22 meetings (15 in the U.S. and 7 internationally.
Our CCAD Research
We are making the impossible possible through innovative research and education around treatment approaches for coronary artery disease cases. Check out our research and resources below.
PROGRESS-CTO is an ongoing contemporary, multi-center global registry of more than 7,000 CTO-PCIs at 50 participating centers, with a goal to provide novel insights into the most complex type of CTO-PCIs through rigorous study of techniques and outcomes across a varied group of operators and medical practices.

Approximately 20% (1 in 5) coronary artery lesions involves a branching point (bifurcation). Recanalizing bifurcation lesions can be challenging because the branching artery may become obstructed or completely occluded during the procedure. The recently launched PROGRESS-Bifurcation registry will provide novel insights on the current state and future directions on coronary bifurcation interventions.
