Clinical Fellow
Research Interests:

transcatheter aortic valve replacement, structural heart disease, balloon valvuloplasty, percutaneous shunt closure, coronary angioplasty


Research Sumary:

Dr. Binder is currently working on the optimization of transcatheter valve deployment and the impact of transcatheter aortic valve replacement on acquired von Willebrand disease. The refinement of transcatheter aortic valve replacement will improve patient outcome and perioperative medical management.
