Clinical Programs

In 2004, the Yale Adult Congenital Heart Program was initiated as the first integrated program in the State of Connecticut dedicated to the care of adult patients with congenital heart disease. This multidisciplinary program encompasses the full spectrum of care and provides inpatient and outpatient services to adults with congenital heart disease.
This unique program is an internationally recognized center for inherited cardiomyopathy.

The Yale Echo Laboratory is comprised of 9 board-certified cardiologists and over 17 registered cardiac sonographers performing transthoracic, stress, and transesophageal echocardiography using state-of-the-art equipment capable of 2D and 3D imaging, intracavitary contrast, and strain imaging.

Our electrophysiology team provides comprehensive care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias using the latest diagnostic and cutting-edge therapeutic tools.
The Cardiovascular Genetics Program at Yale School of Medicine, directed by Arya Mani, MD, was established in 2010 to provide care for patients and families who are suspected of having inherited cardiovascular disease. The program has both clinical and research interests.

Directed by Daniel Jacoby, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, in collaboration with Abeel Mangi, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, the Advanced Heart Failure program provides a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to patients with advanced heart failure. This includes optimization of advanced heart failure medical management, use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing to determine prognosis, and evaluation for advanced therapies such as short-term and long-term mechanical support platforms and cardiac transplantation.

The Yale Cardiovascular Medicine Imaging program is a world-leading, multidisciplinary program focused on state-of-the-art patient care, education, and research.

Inpatient cardiovascular services encompass CCU and the step down unit, the Goodyer service (general inpatient cardiology) and the consult service. The CCU/step-down service, directed by Joseph Brennan, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, provides full time management for patients with acute coronary syndromes. The Goodyer service, directed by Associate Professor of Medicine Lynda Rosenfeld, MD, is dedicated to inpatient management of patients with a wide spectrum of cardiovascular illnesses spectrum of cardiovascular illnesses and their safe transition to outpatient care while the consult service makes Yale cardiology expertise available to all physicians and patients in the Yale New Haven Hospital.

Led by a group of nationally and internationally recognized physicians, the Interventional Cardiology service provides state of the art facilities for a full spectrum of coronary, structural heart, and peripheral vascular interventions (PVI).
Research has shown that the expression of negative emotions in response to a real or perceived provocation seems to consistently correlate with acute cardiac events. A biomedical model incorporating simultaneous Heart-Brain endpoints with behavior which is manifested and shaped by latent cultural and social determinants is our challenge.
The Nuclear Cardiac Imaging program at Yale is a high-volume lab (more than 4000 SPECT, PET and gated blood pool studies per year) that employs state-of-the-art technology to provide critical diagnostic and prognostic information. Our lab performs both inpatient and outpatient stress testing, optimizing the stress protocol and imaging protocol for each patient.
One of the very few of its kind, the cardio-oncology program provides dedicated expertise in evaluation and management of cardiac dysfunction in patients receiving a variety anti-tumor therapies and also provides pre-therapy cardiac risk assessment and comprehensive cardiac care for cancer patients with coexisting heart disease. The program is integrated into activities of the Smilow Cancer Hospital to make access easier for patients.
Under the leadership of Daniel Price, MD, Yale Cardiovascular Medicine offers a full range of cardiology services in the ambulatory setting at locations throughout Southern ConnecticutUnder the leadership of Daniel Price, MD,. Through the Yale New Haven Heart and Vascular Center, services are provided by Yale faculty physicians in easily accessible and patient-friendly facilities. These sites provide not only consultative services but also comprehensive non-invasive diagnostic testing.
Yale has a long tradition of being at the forefront of interventional innovation, currently we are heavily involved in different clinical trials including iliac and SFA stent intervention, drug – eluting angioplasty balloons, carotid stenting, and renal denervation therapy. Our advanced vascular medicine and endovascular interventional training pathway provides comprehensive training for physicians to pursue an independently funded academic career in vascular medicine.
