Research/Clinical Interest
Application of echocardiography for the evaluation of heart disease, with particular interest in heart failure. Research activities have included: 1) clinical trials, both multicenter and local, with particular focus on treatment of heart failure; 2)investigations into the basic properties of ultrasound with special interest in color Doppler evaluation of valvular regurgitation; 3) use of animal models of heart failure (canine, transgenic mouse, rat) to investigate mechanisms underlying cardiac hypertrophy and failure, with special interest in aldosterone and natriuretic peptides; 4) investigation of methods to improve cardiovascular outcomes in advanced stage chronic kidney disease; 5) outcomes research of existing trial databases to improve treatment of congestive heart failure.
