Research Summary

Dr. Law’s research focuses on the management of arrhythmias in children and adults with congenital heart disease. Specifically, this is includes the diagnosis and management of syncope, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular arrhythmias. Research studies have investigated safety and efficacy of anti-arrhythmic therapy, surgical arrhythmia options, ablation procedures, and device therapy (pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators). Dr. Law is also involved in projects that evaluate the psychosocial outcomes of device therapy.
