|Research / Advances||Importance of distal protection during saphenous vein graft intervention and the necessity for local drug-delivery for prevention of restenosis.
|From the doctor||Dr. Hong completed combined clinical and research fellowship at Washington Hospital Center under the mentorship of Dr. Kenneth Kent and Dr. Martin Leon. His seminal clinical research in saphenous vein graft intervention illustrated the importance of distal protection during this high-risk procedure and whose preclinical research in local drug delivery demonstrated the need for drug-eluting stents to prevent restenosis.
Following his fellowship in 1993, he joined the Washington Cardiology Center/Cardiovascular Research Foundation as the director of experimental physiology and pharmacology and conducted both preclinical and clinical research as well as complex interventions till 2000. In 2000, he joined Weill Cornell Medical College faculty as Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Cardiovascular Intervention and Research. Since 2006, he has been the director of cardiac catheterization laboratory and interventional cardiology at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, where he has been performing complex coronary and peripheral interventions. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed publications in interventional cardiology. He is also Co-Editor of “Acute Coronary Syndrome: Multidisciplinary and Pathway-Based Approach” published by Springer. He has been the co-director of symposia on multi-disciplinary approach to acute coronary syndrome management.
