Pioneering cardiologist Dr. Sriram Naidu dies at 86

Sriram Naidu, MD, a pioneering cardiologist, died Oct. 27 after contracting an idiopathic lung illness, Newsday reported. He was 86.

Dr. Naidu was one of the first pioneering cardiologists to do cardiac cauterizations on a large scale in the 1970s. He also was known for his skillful insertions of catheters into blood vessels or the heart and diagnosis of cardiac problems, colleagues told the newspaper. 

From 1980 to 1990, Dr. Naidu was director of Nassau County Medical Center's cardiac catheterization laboratory in New York. He expanded the operation at a time when few such labs existed, according to the report.

Dr. Naidu is survived by his two children and sister.
