Speaker Biographies:

Nancy J. Laste DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology), Director of Medical Services
[Practicing at Angell-Boston and MSPCA-Angell West in Waltham]
Dr. Laste is a board-certified cardiologist who has been with Angell since 1992. Although her primary practice is focused on medical treatment of cardiac diseases in domestic animals (primarily dogs and cats), she is active in interventional cardiology — cardiac catheterization, pacemaker implantation and cardiac surgery. In 1998, Dr. Laste started the thorascopic surgery program, which has successfully treated more than 100 patients with minimally invasive techniques, avoiding the need for open-chest surgery.

Rebecca L. Malakoff DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology)
[Practicing at Angell-Boston and MSPCA-Angell West in Waltham]
Dr. Malakoff is a board-certified cardiologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in pets. Her work includes testing such as echocardiograms, electrocardiograms and blood pressure measurement, the stabilization of critical cardiac patients, and the long-term medical management of congenital and acquired forms of heart disease. Dr. Malakoff performs cardiac catheterization procedures to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of specific cardiac disorders including procedures such as pacemaker implantation, Amplatzer ductal occlusion and coil embolization of PDA, and balloon valvuloplasty. Dr. Malakoff is the director of the cardiology residency program, which trains aspiring cardiologists in the art and science of cardiology

Dr. Quinn is trained in cardiovascular diagnostic tests such as echocardiogram and electrocardiogram. She has a special interest in interventional radiology, and performs procedures such as PDA repair, balloon valvuloplasty, pacemaker placement, and tracheal stenting.
