Scientific Journals from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association

The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association publish medical scientific statements on various cardiovascular disease and stroke topics.  AHA/ASA volunteer scientists and healthcare professionals write the statements.  The statements are supported by scientific studies published in recognized journals and have a rigorous review and approval process.  Scientific statements generally include a review of data available on a specific subject, an evaluation on its relationship to overall cardiovascular disease science, and often an AHA/ASA position on the basis of that evaluation.
