Structural Heart Disease Program

The Structural Heart Disease Program in the Cardiovascular Research Center is designed to maintain a collaborative research environment for structural heart disease investigators at Mayo Clinic.

The Structural Heart Disease Program enables Mayo Clinic researchers to initiate and conduct basic and clinical studies on innovative diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities and to understand the natural history and clinical outcome of various structural heart diseases after instituting a new diagnostic and treatment modality.

The Structural Heart Disease Program focuses on:

  • Congenital heart disease
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Marfan syndrome
  • Pericardial disease
  • Valvular heart disease

The Structural Heart Disease Program is integrated with cardiovascular imaging, which is an integral part of investigating structural heart disease.
