The research of Mayo Clinic nephrologist Mira T. Keddis, M.D., focuses on improving cardiovascular evaluation and management of kidney transplant candidates and recipients and evaluating these patients' access to care and clinical outcomes. In addition, she has a special interest in health care delivery in the Native American population before and after kidney transplant.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the most common complications in patients with kidney disease before and after kidney transplant. The current process of assessing patients for cardiovascular risk is challenging. By understanding how different imaging modalities and cardiac biomarkers can stratify the risk of cardiovascular disease in these patients, Dr. Keddis hopes to improve the process of risk stratification prior to kidney transplant and to implement cardioprotective measures that can decrease patient risk after kidney transplant.
