Heartdisease – right treatment at the right timepoint

In our research we work with different angels related to heart surgery. In one track we focus research project related to severe heart failure in cardiac surgery. We evaluate heart failure related to biomarkers like natriuretic peptides and vasopressin analoges, metabolic intervention and treatment with mechanical circulatory support. The research strive to better identify, prognose and follow patients with severe heart failure during the course of heart surgery. In another track we evaluate patients new vascular grafts after coronary bypass surgery. This evaluation is done by computed tomography of the coronary vessels, and related to factors like medical treatment, age, kidney function and gender.
