The present webpage has been created in order to provide reliable information on cardiological issues. Within its pages one may find articles regarding a wide range of heart conditions, diagnostic and therapeutic means.

Cardiology has been a fast-evolving medical specialty. Indeed, it has efficiently incorporated into clinical practice recent pharma- and biotech- novelties. This has resulted in timely, fast, reliable and reliable diagnostic means and in turn to effective treatment.

I firmly believe that patient-doctor relationship should be grounded in mutual trust and respect. Physician has the obligation to explain to the patient about his/her medical conditions, treatment plans and expected risk/benefit ratio of the latter without utilization of complex terminology. Here, I need to stress that medical data and therapeutic decisions are not a mere summation of knowledge nowadays easily accessed by everyone – but take into account individual patient characteristics which require expert evaluation.

I welcome you to my webpage!

CLINICAL CARDIOLOGY

Meticulous personal and family medical history taking along with physical examination constitute the cornerstones for the evaluation of a patient potentially suffering from a heart condition. Clinical evaluation is often the first direct patient-doctor communication and grounds the basis of further testing, if required.

HEART IMAGING

Transthoracic echocardiography has the major role in the evaluation of patients with cardiac conditions. Advanced techniques, namely stress-echo, SPECT, transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac computed tomography (CT), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) are employed to provide diagnostic solutions in more complex issues.

INTERVENTIONAL CARDIOLOGY

Interventional cardiology involves both diagnostic, e.g. coronary angiogram and right heart catheterization, and therapeutic means, e.g. percutaneous coronary interventions, transcatheter aortic valve implantation, cardiac defect closure.

ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY

Electrophysiological evaluation is utilized in order to assess the functionality of the electrical system of the heart, diagnose and treat a variety of arrhythmias. Nowadays, ablation procedures are conducted in order to modify or even treat specific types of arrhythmias.

CARDIOLOGY TODAY

Cardiovascular disease is, unfortunately, the source of a significant morbidity and mortality in the western world.

Recent advances in science and technology have provided us with the capability to identify a series of factor that are related with adverse outcomes.

A variety of uneventful conditions may be well be avoided if one integrates simple changes in his/her routine like healthier dietary habits, maintenance of a proper body weight, physical exercise. Of course, one should refrain from self-destructing “social-habits” like smoking or binge drinking.

Further, current diagnostic, pharmaceutical and interventional treatments allow us to modify or even treat cardiovascular conditions, improve quality of life and prognosis.
