Cardiac Surgery

Ongoing Research

  • Transcatheter heart valve therapy (TAVI, TMVR, TM and TV repair)
  • Long term outcomes of cardiac surgery
  • Clinical trials in Adult Cardiac Surgery with particular interest in heart valve devices and surgery
  • Heart Failure therapy (heart transplantation and mechanical support)
  • Cardiac device lead management and extraction
  • Treatment of COPD
  • Ischemic reperfusion injury in the neonatal and adult myocardium using isolated working heart models
  • Myocardial Protection
  • Organ preservation for heart/lung transplantation, defense mechanism for control of ischemia-reperfusion injury
  • Prosthetic valve design and valvular reconstruction
  • Thoracic aortic resection and spinal cord ischemia
