Research Interests

Novel Technologies for Transcatheter Intervention, Including Percutaneous Valve Therapy, Device, and Stent Development, and Their Clinical Applications. Jacqueline Kreutzer’s research interests are in novel technologies for transcatheter intervention, including percutaneous valve therapy, device and stent development, and their clinical applications. Kreutzer has been the principal investigator for the following projects.

The Medtronic Melody Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Post-approval Study. Kreutzer served as the principal investigator for this multicenter study on post-market surveillance of the Melody pulmonary valve.

Congenital Cardiovascular Interventional Study Consortium Coarctation Study. This is a multicenter study designed to compare outcomes among surgery, balloon angioplasty, and intravascular stent placement for recurrent or native coarctation of the aorta.

Coarctation of the Aorta Stent Trial (COAST I and COASTII) Multicenter Studies. These studies examine the use of Cheatham platinum bare metal stents, as well as covered stents, for coarctation of the aorta.

C3PO-QI. This is a multi-institutional quality-improvement project to monitor outcomes of pediatric cardiac catheterization.

COMPASSION XT Post-approval Study. This is a multi-center study on post-market surveillance of the Sapien XT pulmonary valve.
