Biography

Ramesh Mazhari is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

Dr. Mazhari joined the faculty of the George Washington University in 2008. She specializes in interventional cardiology, cardiac catheterization, and peripheral vascular disease. Her clinical interests include management of patients with coronary disease, peripheral vascular disease, hemodynamic studies, congestive heart failure, and valvular heart disease.

Training

Residency:
  • George Washington University, 1999-2002
Hypertension fellowship:
  • Harvard School of Medicine, 2002-2003
Cardiology Fellowship:
  • George Washington University, 2003-2006
Interventional Cardiology
  • Johns Hopkins University, 2006-2007
Masters of Clinical Translational Science
  • George Washington University, 2012

Expertise

  • Interventional cardiology, management of patients with coronary and peripheral vascular disease, trans-radial cardiac catheterization

Research

Dr. Mazhari spent two years at Johns Hopkins Stem Cell Institute to investigate the role of stem cell therapy in heart failure.

After joining the George Washington University, she enrolled in a master's training in clinical translational science with focus on genomic medicine. Her research uses genomic testing to assess the population at risk for premature coronary artery disease, and to determine the outcome of patients with congestive heart failure.

She is also interested in minimally invasive interventional procedures including trans-radial cardiac catheterization and interventions in women and elderly population.

Presentations:

  • ISET, Jan 2017  Trans-radial trends in interventional cardiology, lessons to be learned.
  • 2nd Annual Advanced Transradial and Complex Cardiac Interventions Symposium at UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute, 2016. Why transradial incidence is slow to Rise in the USA and Economic Implications.
