Research and Scholarly Activity

On-going studies include the following:

  • TEE indices of diastolic function - myocardial performance index
  • 3D TEE evaluation of the mitral valve in patients undergoing mitral valve repair
  • Intraoperative glucose protocols and outcomes in vascular surgery patients
  • Comparison of TEE measurements of mitral valve leaflet length and septal separation at different planes
  • Measurements of mitral valve area using pressure half-time after mitral valve repair and replacement
  • Intracellular signal transduction in animal models of ventilator associated lung injury
  • Molecular and Genetic Mechanisms in Ventilator Induced Lung Injury
  • Vascular Reactivity in ARDS and Sepsis
