Dr. Shaji Menon is an Assistant Professor and Attending Physician in the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at University of Utah, where he cares for children and fetuses with congenital heart disease. Dr. Menon received his medical degree (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery; MBBS) from Baroda Medical College, India in 1997. After completing medical school, he received his doctorate in pediatrics from Baroda Medical College, India in 2000. He worked as a senior resident doctor in pediatrics at All India Institute of Medical Sciences for 2 years. Dr. Menon completed his pediatric residency at New York School of Medicine (NYU) and Fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester. Dr. Menon’s career as a clinician and researcher began in 2006 at Mayo Clinic, Rochester where he was an Instructor in Pediatrics. He Joined the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in 2008. He is Board Certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Cardiology. Dr. Menon’s clinical work is focused on care of children and fetuses with heart disease. His clinical areas of expertise and interests are in 1) cardiovascular imaging including advanced imaging using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, 2) care of fetuses with congenital heart diseases and rhythm abnormalities, 3) single ventricle patients, 4) cardiomyopathies, specifically hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and 5) sudden cardiac death.
Dr Shaji Menon is a researcher, teacher and clinical and research mentor for pediatric cardiology fellows, pediatric residents, and medical students. His research focus has been 1) role of cardiovascular imaging in congenital heart disease and evaluation of cardiac function, 2) outcomes of patients with single ventricle physiology, 3) outcomes of fetuses with heart defect, and 4) cardiomyopathy and sudden cardiac death. He has been a research mentor to many fellows and residents in their research projects. Dr Menon has written 23 scientific papers, 4 book chapters, and several abstracts spanning all of his research interests. He has presented his research at several national and international scientific meetings. He currently has research grant funding for two projects.
1) Cardiac troponin T mutation causes familial restrictive cardiomyopathy with variable remodeling.
2) Fetal and neonatal presentation of non-compacted ventricular myocardium: expanding the clinical spectrum.
3) Impact of septal myectomy on left atrial volume and left ventricular diastolic filling patterns: an echocardiographic study of young patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
4) Outcome of Hybrid procedure: Intra-operative pulmonary artery stenting.
5) Correlation of microscopic findings in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy with echocardiographic diastolic function.
6) Left atrial volume, a marker of diastolic dysfunction in pediatric HCM.
7) Rheolytic mechanical thrombectomy for pulmonary artery thrombus in children with complex cyanotic congenital heart disease.
8) Histopathological correlation of diastolic dysfunction in pediatric hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
1) Long term outcome of AV valve repair/replacement following Fontan operation. 2) BNP as a diagnostic marker of cardiac disease in newborn.
3) Comparison of strain and strain rate imaging with MR derived RV function in systemic RV. 4)Cardiac MR predictors of outcome following TV repair / replacement in Ebstein anomaly. 5)Long term outcome of ASD and PFO Amplatzer device closure
