Editorial – Ventricular Fibrillation: Rotors or Foci? Both!

My co-authored editorial titled – Ventricular Fibrillation: Rotors or Foci? Both! was accepted for published in the peer review journal – Circulation. Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology. The article is available in print, in the December 2017 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the editorial provides a brief commentary on the current understanding of mechanisms underlying ventricular arrhythmias. The editorial can be accessed here

Gordon Research Conference

Attended the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) held at the Marriott Hotel (Ventura, California) on the dates February 4-10th.  The conference is held every 2 years and is one of the top conferences in the field of cardiac electrophysiology.

The major theme for this year’s conference was cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms. I got the opportunity to present a poster on my original research titled -: Reentrant Volume Index (RVI) Can Predict Arrhythmia Vulnerability in the Human Left Ventricle.

This was my first time attending the conference and I got an opportunity to meet and network with great investigators (established as well as new and upcoming). It was a wonderful experience and I plan to attend the next one in 2019 to be held in Italy ūüôā

Review Paper – Arrhythmogenic and metabolic remodeling of failing human heart

My co-authored review paper titled –¬†Arrhythmogenic and metabolic remodeling of failing¬†human heart¬†was accepted for publishing in the peer-reviewed journal –¬†Journal of Physiology.¬†The article will be available in print, in the May¬†2016 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the review focuses on the current understanding of electrophysiological and metabolic changes that occur in patients with failing hearts. The  review paper and can be accessed here.

Research Paper – Spatial Organization of Acute Myocardial Ischemia

My research paper titled –¬†Spatial Organization of Acute Myocardial Ischemia¬†was accepted for publishing in the peer-reviewed journal –¬†Journal of Electrocardiology.¬†The article will be available in print, in the May¬†2016 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the research focuses on the electrical behavior of the heart during ischemic conditions, which is a precursor to myocardial infarction (heart attack). Specifically, the study investigated the spatial origins (where in the heart do they arise?) of myocardial ischemia. The  paper reported the findings from the study and can be accessed here.
