Randomized comparison of the clinical Outcome of single versus Multiple Arterial grafts: Quality of Life (ROMA: QOL)

Dr. Ruth Masterson Creber, assistant professor of population health sciences, and Dr. Mario FL Gaudino, Stephen and Suzanne Weiss professor in cardiothoracic surgery, have received funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for a new study, “Randomized comparison of the clinical Outcome of single versus Multiple Arterial grafts: Quality of Life (ROMA: QOL).” Dr. Masterson Creber and Dr. Gaudino, the study’s co-principal investigators, are joined by co-investigators Dr. Monika SaffordDr. Karla Ballman, and Dr. Stephen Fremes, who currently serves as the co-PI with Dr. Gaudino on the ROMA trial.

The five-year study, which will be conducted through the Weill Cornell MedicineDepartment of Cardiothoracic Surgery, will recruit patients from 13 countries from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Dr. Masterson Creber’s background in cardiovascular outcomes research, including patient-reported outcomes, combined with Dr. Gaudino’s expertise in surgery, will allow the research team to provide a closer understanding of patients’ quality of life after coronary artery bypass surgery.
