Lynda Ellen Rosenfeld MD

Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) and of Pediatrics

Research Interests

Bradycardia and tachycardia device therapy; Remote monitoring of implanted devices; Atrial fibrillation; Intraoperative determinants of post operative atrial fibrillation; Therapy of patients with post operative AF; Arrhythmias in patients with post operative adult congenital heart disease


Research Summary

My research efforts have been clinical. They have included clinical trials of innovative therapy of both tachy and bradyarrhythmias as well as several evaluations of treatment strategies for common arrhythmias, including nonsustained ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. I have had a special interest in the long term electrophysiological consequences of surgery to correct and palliate congenital heart disease.
