minimally invasive cardiac surgery
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.
