  • PHD, Rheumatology, Volgograd Medical School, 1990
  • MD, Medicine - Cardiology, Volgograd Medical School, 1984

Research Interests

  • Maya Guglin, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Heart Failure in University of South Florida. She also runs the adult congenital heart disease program (together with Dr. Dadlani) and cardiomyopathy clinic seeing patients with genetic and familial cardiomyopathy, peripartum cardiomyopathy, cardiac amyloidosis, cardiac sarcoidosis, chemotherapy induced cardiomyopathy, right ventricular failure.
  • Native of Russia, she graduated from Volgograd medical school in 1984 and worked as a Cardiology attending in the CCU for several years before coming to US in 1997. Her American training took place in Case Western Reserve University (residency) and UMDNJ (fellowship). She joined USF in 2006. As a USF faculty she practices not only in University clinics but also at Tampa General Hospital and Moffitt Cancer Institute.
  • Dr. Guglin’s clinical and research interests include heart failure, chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy, adult congenital heart diseases, pulmonary hypertension, unusual cardiomyopathies, echocardiography, cardiac transplantation and left ventricular assist devices. Dr. Guglin authored and co-authored about 50 articles in peer review journals. She regularly presents at the scientific sessions of the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, Heart Failure Society of America, etc. She is a member of the ACC Heart Failure and Transplant committee. Her most important contributions are:
  • • Key role of diuretics in treatment of heart failure.
  • • Concept of congestion as a leading factor in the pathogenesis of heart failure
  • • Ultrafiltration in diuretic resistant heart failure
  • • Intravenous nitroglycerin, including high doses, in refractory heart failure including cardiogenic shock
  • • Similarity of neurogenic stunned myocardium and takotsubo (stress induced) cardiomyopathy
  • • Congestion as a pivotal factor of cardiorenal syndrome
  • • Connection of atrial fibrillation and heart failure
  • • Trastuzumab-induced cardiomyopathy
