RWJBarnabas Health physicians are prolific researchers whose work can be found in a variety of peer-reviewed scientific journals. In addition to the most recent scholarly publications listed below, our team members are invited each year to present their findings at national and international conferences.

Sethi N., Kotev S., Zain Khakwani M., Manjusa A., Cohen M., Wasty N. A Counterintuitive Lack of Relationship Between Right Atrial and Left Ventricular End Diastolic Pressures with the Corrected Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction Frame Count. Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions DOI 2015Since the coronary circulation drains into the right atrium, conventional wisdom would dictate that coronary blood flow may be reduced in settings of increased right heart pressures, but a careful analysis in our large cohort of such patients did not bear out this relationship. We are not aware of any other studies on this subject.
