- Clinical interest for patients
Heart failure requiring care beyond the usual medications, with options ranging from implantation of a pulmonary artery pressure monitor to better manage fluid balance, to evaluation for left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and/or heart transplant. I am developing a program for Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction and we are exploring novel approaches for this condition. I also enjoy working with patients after LVAD and heart transplant, with a specific interest in transplant rejection and hemodynamic studies. I am the Principal Investigator for clinical trials involving stem cells in ischemic heart disease (CardiAMP Heart Failure trial), heart rate modulation in non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (PROBE-IT) and the CardioMEMS Post-Approval Study.
