Description of CVI Expertise

Associate Chair and Chief, Interventional Radiology

CVI Program Unit(s):
Cardiovascular Development / Congenital Heart Disease
Lipid / Atherosclerosis / CAD / ACS / Prevention
Thrombosis / Hemostasis

CVI Research Description:
As an interventional radiologist I have a longstanding interest in peripheral vascular disease. My research focus has largely been in venous disease and hemodialysis access with a particular focus in mechanical thrombectomy. My clinical foci (and more recently research foci as well), as pertains to cardiovascular disease in particular, are the management of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations either related to or unrelated to hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, as part of the HHT center here at Penn; and venous thromboembolic disease, in particular the management of removable inferior vena caval filters.
