Jacob Green, M.D.

Expertise: Interventional Cardiology

Dr. Jacob Green is Board Certified in Cardiovascular Disease and Internal Medicine, having received his training in both at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia; where he recently completed an additional fellowship in Interventional Cardiology.  Dr. Green received his Doctor of Medicine degree from The University of Arizona

Dr. Green specializes in coronary and peripheral arterial disease diagnosis and treatment including minimally invasive techniques such as angioplasty and stenting. He has particular interest and specialized training in catheter-based treatment of valvular and structural heart disease including aortic stenosis (AS), patent foramen ovale (PFO) and atrial septal defects (ASD).

Research:

2007 – 2008: Cardiovascular clinical research fellow, Division of Valvular Interventional and Structural Heart Disease, Andreas Gruentzig Cardiovascular Center, Emory University

Ongoing research projects:

• Co-Investigator: PARTNER (Placement of AoRTic TraNscathetER Valves) Trial- prospective, randomized-controlled, multi-center pivotal trial evaluating the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards SAPIEN™ Transcatheter Heart Valve in a stratified population of high risk patients (two patient populations versus section controls). Institutional PI: Peter Block, MD

• Co-Investigator: VIVID Feasibility Study (Valvular and Ventricular Improvement via iCoapsys Delivery Feasibility Study)- prospective, non-randomized, single-arm feasibility evaluation of the iCoapsys System in patients with functional mitral valve insufficiency caused by annular dilation and/or papillary muscle displacement. Institutional PI: Peter Block, MD

• Co-Investigator: EVEREST II- A Pivotal Study of the Evalve® Cardiovascular Valve Repair System: The Endovascular Valve Edge-to-Edge REpair STudy

• Temporary percutaneous left ventricular assist support to palliate end-stage cardiomyopathy- pending IRB approval. PI: Vasilis Babaliaros, MD
