CAI Continues to Award PCAP Funds for New Study on Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Outcomes

The CAI awards another new project with Patient-Oriented Cardiovascular Academic Projects (PCAP) Funds. Dr. Sara Matloub, internal medicine resident, and Dr. Sarah Thordsen, Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine/Cardiology, were awarded these funds for their project titled, "Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Outcomes in a Local Population." The study compares the population and outcomes between white and non-white subjects affected by peripartum cardiomyopathy.

The study consists of three aims:

  1. Determine the demographic makeup and clinical history of Froedtert Health’s Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM) population
  2. Determine if minority women with PPCM are referred to specialty care with the same frequency as white women
  3. Describe the differences in guideline directed medical therapy in white versus non-Hispanic/black PPCM patients
