    Dr. Lytrivi received her medical degree from the University of Athens and completed her residency in General Pediatrics at Monmouth Medical Center in New Jersey. She did her pediatric cardiology fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical Center where she also completed a fourth year advanced training in non-invasive imaging. She worked as a pediatric cardiologist at Maimonides Medical Center, maintaining a part-time faculty position at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She then went back to her native Greece where she worked in the largest pediatric cardiology center in Athens for two years. Prior to joining Mount Sinai again, she received advanced training in heart failure/heart transplant at Boston Children’s Hospital. She is currently the Medical Director of the Pediatric Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Service as of January 2012.


Dr. Lytrivi’s mainresearch interest is the non-invasive assessment of cardiac function before and after heart transplantation.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Lytrivi did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
