Morbidity and Mortality Presentation
2017 Concern for Rejection
UWSMPH Pediatrics Residency Morning Report Conference Series
Discussed a M&M case regarding a patient with a small bowel transplant who presented with
concerns for rejection. She was put through unnecessary testing that put her at high risk for
morbidity and mortality.
Made recommendations to improve the planning of procedures and how to prevent this case
scenario from happening again.
Scholarly Project
UW Research Day
Pediatric Academic Society
Primary Researcher
Conclusion: This retrospective chart review was able to identify family history of CD and
animal exposure as specific early-life influencers that could predispose one to developing CD
2019 - 2021 Does High-Intensity Exercise cause Acute Liver Injury in Patients with Fontan Circulation? A
Prospective Pilot Study
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin
Principal Investigator
Conclusion: In patients post Fontan procedure, the liver receives less oxygen during exercise
and recovers slowly. In patients with normal systolic function, no clinical evidence of acute
liver injury was found with exercise. Further studies are needed to understand the impact of
exercise on liver injury and FALD
2021 - 2022 The Role of Cardiac MRI in Fontan-Associated Liver Disease
Boston Children's Hospital
Co-Investigator
Conclusion: This retrospective chart review compared cardiac MRI and abdominal ultrasound
finding in patients with clinically significant Fontan-associated liver disease (FALD) versus
Principal Investigator
those without clinically significant FALD. We found that liver surveillance is uncommon, but clinically significant abnormal abdominal ultrasound findings are common in patients with Fontan circulation. Lastly, increased IVC flow may be an important marker of FALD; however, larger prospective studies are warranted to identify those patients in need of early hepatology referral
