Dr. Annapoorna S. Kini performs over 1,000 minimally invasive coronary interventions annually (the highest number by a female interventionalist in the United States) with extremely low complication rate, less than 0.5 percent. She is well known for performing the complex coronary interventions in advanced heart disease patients with utmost safety and excellent long-term results. Dr. Kini also specializes in the non-coronary interventions of mitral and aortic balloon valvuloplasty, and alcohol septal ablation for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

    As Director of the The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at The Mount Sinai Hospital she is responsible for day-to-day smooth functioning of a very high volume Cardiac Cath Lab which performs more than 15,000 total procedures including 5,200 interventions. Dr. Kini also serves as the Director of Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program involving six-to-seven fellows from the United States and overseas. Mount Sinai fellowship is one of the largest and Dr. Kini is responsible for selection and training of these fellows.

These live cases are broadcast to over 131 countries and receive over 7,000 page views.

    Dr. Kini is widely published on various topics of Interventional Cardiology, including peri-procedural enzyme elevations, rotational atheretomy, other newer devices, contrast nephropathy, and valvuloplasties. She has authored numerous book chapters in the field of acute coronary syndrome and coronary interventions. She serves as the site Principal Investigator for numerous multicenter trials including NIH sponsored trials. She maintains a large interventional database of more than 30,000 PCI patients, which helps in analysis and publications of short and long term outcomes after all kinds of coronary interventions.
