BiographyKenneth Rosenfield, MD, is the Section Head for Vascular Medicine and Intervention, who specializes in complex cardiac and vascular interventions and directs the program for treatment of acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) in the cardiac catheterization laboratories. He has spearheaded the development of less-invasive therapies for patients with coronary and vascular disease, both at MGH and nationally, including treatment of Carotid, Kidney, and Leg artery narrowing using stents and other novel devices.

Research

Dr. Rosenfield has served as national principle investigator (PI) for numerous clinical trials

Stents and surgery both safe for prevention of stroke, study says

Investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital revealed the results of the CREST trial, a study that looked at the efficacy of carotid endarterectomy versus stenting in patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis, and found that these two medical procedures are both equally safe and effective.

Patient selection criteria and interventional treatment parameters for renal artery stenosis

The medical community has made great strides treating coronary and carotid artery diseases and reducing mortality associated with myocardial infarctions and strokes. While as many as 3 million Americans have renal artery stenosis (RAS)—a condition that narrows or blocks the vessels that supply blood to the kidneys—RAS is often overlooked and underdiagnosed.
