Clinical Research Interest: Determination of the parameters that define VT initiation and maintenance after successful revascularization, including patient profile, cardiac risk, myocardium in jeopardy, comparison of MRI/CT/Echo/NST based viable myocardium. VT in patients with LVAD.
Left Atrial Appendage Morphology and Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation remains the most common arrhythmia in practice and stroke is one of the main killers and cause for morbidity worldwide. This current research garners the newly acquired knowledge of LAA morphology to determine the factors that induce thrombus formation in patients with atrial fibrillation leading to stroke.
Mind-Body Medicine: Includes research involving brain imaging, hormonal changes, immunological parameters in various states of consciousness and heart disease. Coronary artery disease is the most common killer in the Western Hemisphere. Factors studied include the role of emotions and environmental changes, including adverse environment, in precipitating and sustaining heart diseases. These include the role of meditation, stress reduction and biofeedback on the mind-heart axis to prevent and treat cardiovascular pathology initiated in a stressed organism.
Artificial Intelligence: Research using AI data to predict emotional states like depression that can affect prognosis of Cardiovascular Disease.
