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.

Specialized Terms: 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

Extensive Research Description

My research interests have included the arrhythmias associated with congenital heart disease, the unique presentation of Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome in older patients, studies examining the management of atrial fibrillation and the use of implantable cardiac electronic devices as well as the remote monitoring of those devices. I have also been involved in studies examining the impact of stroke in the setting of atrial fibrillation on patients and their care givers and in examining strategies for screening for asymptomatic atrial fibrillation. I have a special interest in the diagnosis and arrhythmic consequences of cardiac sarcoidosis and am involved in writing the upcoming revised guidelines for the diagnosis and management of cardiac involvement in Lyme disease.
