Clinical Interests for Referring Providers

Coronary artery disease, structural heart disease (mitral, aortic, tricuspid valves, patent foramen ovale, atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects and paravalvular leaks).

Research Interest for Referring Providers

My research interests focus on clinical trials in the novel trans-catheter therapies in valvular and coronary artery disease. I'm a a co-investigator in the following trials: - TRILLUMINATE (transcatheter edge to edge repair using the Abbott TriClip device for tricuspid regurgitation) - TENDYNE (trans-apical transcatheter mitral valve replacement) - CLASP (trans-catheter edge to edge mitral valve repair of mitral regurgitation with the Edwards PASCAL device) I am also a co-investigator in active research protocols for multi-modality imaging (3D TEE and fluoroscopy fusion during structural heart interventions) and dynamic coronary roadmapping.
