Cardiac rhythm disorders include a number of abnormal heart rhythms. As one of the premier heart rhythm research centers in the nation, the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation® (MHIF) drives research that brings new insights into the treatment of those affected by abnormal heart rhythms. From research that improves the treatment of heart rhythm, to studies assessing the effectiveness of implantable cardioverter defibrillators used for ventricular fibrillation, MHIF is changing outcomes. The Foundation also supports unique programs such as the Genetic Arrhythmia Center that studies rare inheritable heart rhythm disorders and the Midwest Adult Congenital Cardiac Center that advances the treatment of adult survivors of congenital heart defects.
Our electrophysiologists, advanced practitioners and skilled technicians, in concert with the Minneapolis Heart Institute®, direct one of the largest and most comprehensive arrhythmia programs in the nation. Collectively, they improve the lives of those with common as well as complex rhythm disorders.
