Since my medical school training I was interested in research. During the preparation of my thesis I had my experience in research laboratory using specific cardiovascular assessment instruments and working with advanced analysis system. My current interests are: atrial fibrillation and cardiac surgery, neurological disease after cardiac surgery, development of transcatheter aortic valve repair (TAVI) and new generation of LVAD. I have been started to collect and analyze data about minimally invasive surgery versus conventional surgery. I was recently involved in heart transplants, and discovered a scientific environment to grow and develop my research interests in particularly in intensive care unit.
Research Interests Cardiac Surgery:
