- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: Endografts
Lee Kirksey, MD, Daniel Clair, MD and Sean Lyden, MD discuss the options in treating abdominal aortic aneurysms including surgery, minimally invasive and endovascular treatments, and the latest clinical trial – LEOPARD - which may provide closure to long standing questions surrounding aortic endograft selection.
- Multi-modality Imaging for Diagnosis and Therapeutic Planning in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
Milind Desai, MD, staff cardiologist in the Section of Cardiovascular Imaging, discusses a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis of Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Dr. Desai uses case studies to present examples of the use of imaging techniques to confirm or rule out diagnosis of HCM, risk stratify, and create a therapeutic plan.
- Women and Cardiovascular Disease
Leslie Cho, MD, Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Women’s Cardiovascular Center and Section Head, Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation discusses women and coronary artery disease. The issues Dr. Cho covers includes are there gender differences in risk factors, clinical manifestation of cardiovascular disease, cardiac testing and treatment and outcome of CAD.

- Can you talk about the new multimodality guidelines for imaging in the management of pericardial disease?
- How often do you use imaging during the course of treatment?
- Do you ever combine imaging techniques? When is this appropriate?
- What do you find is the best imaging test to use for pericardial disease?
- What is the role of inflammatory markers, such as CRP or Sed Rate?
- How does your imaging technique change in a patient when there is inflammation?
- What are the differences in findings you would see with constrictive pericarditis?
- How do differentiate constriction from restriction?
- What are the findings in pericardial effusions?
- What do you do for treatment in patients with chronic pericardial effusions
- What are the implications of a calcified pericardium?
- How do you treat recurrent pericarditis when there is many relapses
- What is time frame for follow up exams for acute pericarditis and/or constrictive pericarditis?
- How successful is pericardiectomy and what are the results?
- What is the function of the pericardium? Can you live without it?
