Date:1/17/2008

Bruce Lindsay, M.D., Will Lead One of the Nation's Largest

Electrophysiology Programs

CLEVELAND, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce D. Lindsay, M.D., currently Professor of Medicine and Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at Washington University in St. Louis, has been appointed Director of Electrophysiology at the Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute.

"We are pleased to have such an established leader in the field of electrophysiology join our team and continue to develop this talented department of physicians who have deep skills in treating delicate and complex diseases," said Bruce Lytle, M.D., Chairman of Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute.

"Dr. Lindsay is one of the world's most prominent experts in heart rhythm disorders and will bring great energy and leadership to this vital area of cardiology," said Dr. Steven Nissen, Chairman of Cardiovascular Medicine.

Dr. Lindsay, an established leader in the field, is the President of the Heart Rhythm Society, a member of the Board of Trustees for the American College of Cardiology and former chair of the College's Board of Governors. He also works with the American Board of Internal Medicine writing examinations that certify knowledge and skills in the field of cardiac electrophysiology.

"My decision to accept this position was strongly influenced by the Clinic's mission to provide compassionate health care of the highest quality," said Dr. Lindsay. "This embodies a goal I have set throughout my career, and I look forward to working with this internationally acclaimed institution."

Dr. Lindsay is a graduate of Jefferson Medical College and completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Michigan. He served in the National Health Service Corps from 1980-83 at a rural health initiative project in East Jordan, Michigan. While practicing in this rural community, he became interested in heart rhythm disorders because little was known about the causes and optimal treatment of these problems.

Dr. Lindsay completed a cardiology fellowship at Washington University where he undertook additional training in the treatment of heart rhythm disorders. He joined the faculty in 1985 and became director of the electrophysiology program in 1994.

His clinical research and publications have focused on identification of patients at increased risk for cardiac arrest, improved technology for implantable defibrillators, malfunctions of implantable cardiac devices and advances in ablation of heart rhythm abnormalities. He is an author for the Heart Rhythm Society's recent state of the art consensus document for ablation of atrial fibrillation. Through his commitment to education he has served on the faculty at meetings throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Taiwan and China.
