Description of Research Expertise

Non-invasive cardiac imaging, Arterial stiffness/hemodynamics, ventricular-vascular interactions. Cardiovascular consequences of obstructive sleep apnea.

Description of Itmat Expertise

I am interested in the non-invasive assessment of arterial function and ventricular-vascular coupling and its role in left ventricular remodeling, dysfunction and heart failure risk. I am particularly interested in the role of the left ventricular loading sequence in patients with heart failure and normal ejection fraction as well as in the role of arterial stiffness and central arterial pressures as predictors of cardiovascular risk. I am also interested in the cardiovascular consequences of obstructive sleep apnea.
