Still the excellent postoperative outcome is maintained and in some aspects better. This improvement is the result of research in diagnostics, anesthesia and surgery.
The common aim of my research project is to further improve survival and quality of life for our patients. It includes studies on heart metabolism and evaluation of metabolic support at cardiac surgery as well as survey of cardiac function, survival and prognostic factors after aortic valve intervention both with open surgery and with catheter mediated technique.
I am also in charge of projects in which we evaluate surgery for atrial fibrillation and surgery for mitral regurgitation.
