Dr. Manohar Sai Gowda Memorial Young Investigator Cardiovascular Research Award

Dr. Manohar Sai Gowda

DrManoharSaiGowda

Manohar Sai Gowda was born in Nashville, Tennessee. He attended Florida StateUniversity for his undergraduate degree and attended Meharry MedicalCollege in Nashville, Tennessee. He was an Internal Medicine resident and then Cardiovascular fellow at the University of Missouri at Kansas City and  St. Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City, Missouri from 1997 until July 2002. He was first and foremost a dedicated and compassionate physician who provided excellent care to his patients.

He was also a remarkably productive clinical researcher while a resident and fellow. Over the course of his training in Kansas   City, Dr. Gowda published 9 papers in peer-reviewed medical journals and authored 18 abstracts presented at national meetings.  In addition to his clinical skills and contributions to cardiovascular research, he is remembered by his colleagues as brilliant, insightful, and extremely hard-working. He was rarely seen without a smile, and was unfailingly kind and thoughtful to all with whom he interacted.  He was a delight to work with, both as a clinician and a researcher.

Thanks to the generous contributions of family and friends of Manohar, we are pleased to announce the Eight Annual Dr. Manohar Sai Gowda Memorial Young Investigator Cardiovascular Research Award, to be presented at the 2017 Kansas City Heart Rhythm Symposium. This award has been established in appreciation of the late Dr. Gowda’s contributions to cardiovascular research as both an investigator and a mentor to young research scientists.

Abstract Title: Role of Percutaneous Left Ventricular Assisst Devices in Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation.

Abstract Summary: The role of percutaneous left ventricular assist devices (pLVADs) for hemodynamic support during Ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation was assessed in a multicenter study. Patients with intra aortic balloon pump (IABP group) were compared with patients with either Impella or a TandemHeart device (non-IABP group). They concluded that Impella and TandemHeart implantation for unstable VT ablation help in performing more activation mapping, ablating more unstable VT’s and requiring fewer rescue shocks during the procedure when compared to using IABP.
