Nabila Laskar MRCP
Dr Nabila Laskar is a dedicated and accomplished Cardiology Research Fellow affiliated with St Bartholomews Hospital in London. With a profound interest in Heart Valve Disease and Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction, she has positioned herself as a prominent figure in the field.
Recently, Dr. Laskar successfully completed a pioneering pilot study known as the LOndon Valve and reduced Ejection fraction (LOVE) program. This groundbreaking initiative involved meticulously examining over 500 patients residing in the North East London region. Dr. Laskar played a pivotal role in training healthcare professionals from various disciplines to perform abbreviated echocardiography, enabling them to proficiently identify heart valve disease and left ventricular systolic dysfunction. The study uncovered a substantial prevalence of heart valve disease, with an alarming rate of 46%.
Building on the success of the LOVE program, Dr. Laskar has embarked on the LOVE 2 study. The primary objective of this study is to challenge the conventional methods by redesigning the workforce to effectively execute goal-directed abbreviated echocardiography. By doing so, Dr. Laskar seeks to establish a paradigm shift in healthcare practice, enabling timely identification and exclusion of significant structural heart disease.
