J. Kevin Harrison, MD
Director Duke Center for Structural Heart Disease
J. Kevin Harrison MD is a Professor of Medicine at Duke University Medical Center. He trained in interventional cardiology at Duke after finishing his medicine training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. His primary clinical and research interests have been in the area of structural heart disease intervention. This included early work on the treatment of valvular heart disease with balloon catheters, including the development of balloon commissurotomy for treatment of mitral stenosis. He was then involved the development of catheter based treatment for congenital heart disease including the treatment of secundum ASD. Kevin is the interventional director of the Duke Center for Structural Heart Disease and developed the Duke program for detailed training of one structural heart disease interventional fellow each year. Over the last 8 years he has focused his efforts on catheter treatment of aortic valve disease employing catheter deployed valves. He participated in multiple national randomized trials for transcatheter aortic valve replacement and is now focusing on the movement of this technology to other valve disease such as mitral regurgitation.
