  • According to a secondary analysis of a randomized trial of mitral valve surgery for severe ischemic mitral regurgitation, women are at significantly higher risk than men for death, major cardiac/cerebrovascular events and worse quality of life two years after surgery.

  • Judy Wei-Ming Hung, MD, director of Echocardiography in the Division of Cardiology, is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of mitral regurgitation. In this video, she discusses an algorithm for approaching and diagnosing the condition that she developed as part of a recent set of joint guidelines for severe aortic stenosis.

  • Despite many changes in the last two decades, women who work in Cardiology are still the minority. In this video, female cardiologists from the Massachusetts General Hospital Corrigan Minehan Heart Center talk about why it’s important to improve disparities in the field – for both their peers and patients.

  • Mass General physicians presented on the podium, moderated sessions and showcased posters over 50 times at the American College of Cardiology 2018 Scientific Sessions. Some of them answered the question: “What was the most interesting topic presented at this year’s Scientific Session?"

  • At the ACC.18 Scientific Session and Expo, physicians and researchers from Mass General's Corrigan Minehan Heart Center will present their world-leading research and innovative approaches. Here are the eight can't miss sessions and presentations.

  • Researchers found that a mismatch in left ventricular and mitral valve ring size can predict whether a patient is at a higher risk of recurrent mitral regurgitation after mitral valve repair.


I am a cardiologist with a special interest in valvular heart disease, coronary artery disease and optimizing noninvasive cardiac imaging techniques to improve diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.
