Cardiac Pathology

The Cardiac Pathology Unit of the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University Medical Center has extensive experience in cardiac and cardiac-transplant pathology. Each year, the unit reviews more than 2,000 cardiovascular specimens, including cardiomyopathy and post-transplant heart biopsies, heart and cardiac-valve explants, aneurysms, and biopsies of blood vessels. We also have extensive experience in the pathology of congenital heart disease.

In addition to diagnostic cardiac pathology, our faculty is actively involved in research projects. Among the major areas of interest are cardiac-transplant pathology, noninvasive monitoring of post-transplant status, evaluation of experimental drug and stem-cell therapies for cardiac allograft rejection, myocardial infarcts and arrhythmias in animal models, and the molecular biology of cardiovascular development and heart failure.
