Chief, Invasive Cardiology
Office Phone: 617-355-6529
Appointment Line: 617-355-6529
Dr. Marshall received her B.A. degree in 1988 from Yale University, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and with distinction in her major, History. In 1993, she received her medical degree from University of Pennsylvania, where she was Alpha Omega Alpha and received an American Medical Womens Association Scholarship citation. She began her residency at Childrens Hospital Boston, in 1993, and distinguished herself as one of the most outstanding residents in her class. During her fellowship at Children's, she went into the laboratory of Dr. Elazer Edelman under the auspices of our T32 award; there, she studied differential characteristics of in-stent restenosis following aortic and pulmonary arterial stenting in a swine model. She returned from the bench to the bedside to perform a senior fellowship in pediatric interventional cardiology. Dr. Marshall was appointed to Children's faculty as Instructor in Pediatrics in 2001 and to Assistant Professor in 2004. Her clinical skills, teaching, and innovative research in pediatric interventional cardiac catheterization form the unifying theme for her academic activities and achievements. Dr. Marshall has been a successful clinical innovator and investigator, whose work has received national and international recognition. Her research has focused on interventional catheterization, and is distinguished by her unprecedented studies of fetal cardiac intervention. Her major contributions are summarized below: * In collaboration with cardiologists Drs. James Lock and Dr. Wayne Tworetzky, Dr. Marshall has described technical aspects of 2 novel interventions, fetal atrial septal defect creation and fetal aortic valve dilation. Her work toward developing tools designed for these unique procedures has resulted in a patented introducer cannula with directional control. * She has reported previously unrecognized effects of transcatheter management of aortic stenosis and has worked with cardiac surgical colleagues to report outcomes of 2 of the most lethal forms of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. * Dr. Marshall serves as the primary investigator at the Childrens in the first prospective multicenter trial of the use of stents for coarctation. * She conducted the first review of fenestrated patch repair of the ventricular septal defect in Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, and was also first to describe transcatheter creation of a decompressing ventricular septal defect in complex double outlet right ventricles.
