Her clinical interests include management of patients with coronary disease, peripheral vascular disease, hemodynamic studies, congestive heart failure and valvular heart disease.
Dr. Mazhari’s 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. In her most recent paper, she discussed the increased risk and increased reward in coronary intervention in older patients with acute coronary syndrome.
