Dr. Kaddourah finished his general pediatric nephrology
training from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) in June, 2013. He decided to expand both his clinical and research expertise in the field of acute care nephrology under the supervision of one of the pioneers in the field of pediatric acute kidney injury, Dr. Stuart Goldstein at CCHMC. In the last 3 years, Dr. Kaddourah has been working closely with the heart institute at CCHMC to study cardiorenal syndromes and urinary biomarkers in children with cardiomyopathies
For the last 10 years, my career has focused on the care of critically ill neonates, infants, children, adolescents and adults with complex congenital heart disease (CHD). Mortality rates have fallen significantly in the CHD population resulting in a large population of survivors but with significant morbidities. I have an interest in how care in the intensive care unit can impact these morbidities, in particular, renal and hematologic morbidities.
Bryan G. Maxwell, MD, MPH is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore. He is a full-time clinician with a particular interest in the care of adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). His research interests center on the outcomes of cardiac surgery, noncardiac surgery, and pregnancy in ACHD patients, as well as on ways to study and improve the structure and performance of health systems in dealing with the complex challenges posed by the ACHD patients over their whole lifespan, from fragile neonates to middle-aged or elderly adults living with the long-term sequelae of corrective or palliative surgery. His research also addresses the public health and resource utilization implications of complex cardiac surgical care, including the population-level effects of heart and lung transplantation, the use of mechanical circulatory support, and the perioperative care of patients with severe pulmonary hypertension.
