Other Interests

minimally invasive cardiac surgery
valve surgery
myocardial protection


Minimally invasive valve surgery and durability of bioprostheses are my main topics of experimental research.

We have a fully equipped small and large animal facility with all physiological (pressures, flows, conductance, contractility) and imaging techniques available.

Clinically, my research is focused on valve surgery and infective endocarditis.
