MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL -- Individuals without symptoms of cardiovascular disease may already have early heart or blood vessel disease, according to researchers at the University of Minnesota's Rasmussen Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention. The research, part of a presentation at the National Cardiovascular Health Conference 2002 in Washington, D.C., April 11–12, found that more than half of asymptomatic patients screened in the center have early disease, which can be detected through comprehensive testing before the heart is affected.
