Ozarks Medical Center Interventional cardiologist M. Faisal Khan, MD, has
been published in the
Journal of Invasive Cardiology, a prestigious medical publication that features the latest studies and
information regarding the field of invasive cardiology.
Dr. Khan’s article, titled “Nickel Elution Properties of Contemporary
Interatrial Shunt Closure Devices,” is a study comparing devices
used to close holes in the heart through interventional cardiology in
the catheterization lab rather than open heart surgery.
“We congratulate Dr. Khan on his accomplishments,” said Jeannie
Looper, Chief Operating Officer. “He is leading his field in research
and innovation. We are fortunate to have physicians of this caliber caring
for our community.”
