LA BioMed investigators uncover new advancements in cardiovascular medicine
Date:2/21/2012

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 21, 2012) With the month of February designated as Heart Health Month, physician-researchers in the Division of Cardiology at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) Dr. Matthew Budoff and Dr. Ronald Oudiz continue to pave the way with their efforts to develop treatments and therapies for conditions affecting the heart, and to help improve overall heart health.

"Our research is aimed at achieving earlier detection of heart disease, especially in asymptomatic patients," said Dr. Budoff. "We've been very fortunate to have received such overwhelming support from different entities, which has enabled us to continue our research in cardiovascular medicine."

"As the nation focuses on heart health this month, we continue to aggressively find ways to decrease the chances of heart failure and subsequently death - for patients with pulmonary hypertension, a rare disorder that results in progressive heart failure and death," said Dr. Oudiz.

Dr. Budoff has been a thought leader in coronary artery calcium and computed tomographic (CT) angiography over the last 20 years. Dr. Budoff's expertise ranges from coronary artery calcium and CT angiography, to venous imaging, aortic imaging, and ventricular and atrial imaging. He and his staff have worked closely with partners in device manufacturing to assess the adequacy of different techniques, acting as a core lab for studies including heart failure devices, mitral valve and aortic valve repair techniques and devices, pacemakers (both wireless and biventricular), and stents (coronary and aortic), among others.

Currently, Dr. Budoff and his staff are working on a study to assess whether using a garlic extract can have a significant impact on the buildup of plaque, which has been known to cause heart attacks. They are also working on several ongoing studies looking at interactions of testosterone, a study on diabetes, and a study looking at heart di
