Research Interests

  • Dr. Hung’s researchinterests are focused on C-reactive protein in the dynamic coronary stenosis. His laboratory attempts to apply basic and biostatistical findings to the possible pathophysiologic mechanism in coronary spasm (dynamic coronary stenosis). In addition, Dr. Hung is also interested in left ventricular diastolic function evaluation using echocardiography. His echocardiographic laboratory attempts to examine the left ventricular anatomical and functional changes in patients with coronary spasm. Currently, Dr. Hung is studying the left ventricular changes using echocardiography in a retrospective study for patients with coronary spasm. Summary of ongoing projects in his laboratory include:
  • Coronary intervention, Peripheral intervention (hemodialysis AV shunt angioplasty), Echocardiography
  • Investigating the mechanisms by which inflammatory cytokines play in the mechanism of coronary spasm.
  • Investigating the left ventricular anatomical and functional changes in patients with coronary spasm.
