Bio

Dr. Glatz is a pediatric interventional cardiologist with a strong interest and focus on conducting rigorously designed clinical research. He has formal Masters-level training in study design, epidemiology, and biostatistics. He also has extensive record of research productivity, including multiple collaborative projects, focused on outcomes research in the content area of pediatric cardiology.

He is currently the Director of the Cardiac Center Clinical Research as well an Associate Chief in the Division of Cardiology, responsible for clinical research. One of his primary areas of research focus is studying the role of systemic to pulmonary arterial collateral flow in children with single ventricle heart disease, in whom the presence of these collateral vessels is well-recognized. However, historically, there has been much debate regarding the mechanistic underpinnings, physiologic burden, effects on outcomes, and role for intervention in the management of arterial collaterals in these patients.

Dr. Glatz has been a leading part of a research group that has used novel methods of quantifying collateral flow by cardiac MRI techniques to answer many of these questions and provide some clarity to our field. Other areas of interest include the use of large databases to study outcomes, practice variability, and health services research.

He is also involved in multiple clinical trials investigating novel devices and therapeutics in congenital heart disease, including serving as site PI on a multi-national, multi-center randomized trial investigating safety and efficacy of a novel oral anticoagulant in children with various forms of congenital and acquired heart disease. Finally, Dr. Glatz is intimately involved in numerous multi-center research collaboratives, including the NIH/NHLBI's Pediatric Heart Network and the Congenital Catheterization Research Collaborative.
