Sushma Reddy, MD, assitant professor of pediatric cardiology
On children with a single ventricle heart defect: "At some point in time, all of these children go into heart failure—all of them."
"We've identified a group of microRNAs that we think are important. They give us clues of when the heart is beginning to decompensate much sooner than the current methods we use. We have early data in children with heart disease showing that these biomarkers are useful predictors of disease progression."
