Since 1995, one of my main goals has been the development and organization of the Haemodynamic Department. Today this Department is at the service of the patients from the Southeast of Greece, with 24 hours/7 days per week service. The department is among the highest volume centers in Greece, performing 2.500 cardiac catheterizations and 800 coronary interventions per year. I have set up and developed the whole spectrum of invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures at the Haemodynamic Department, and have performed more than 15.000 cardiac catheterizations and more than 5.000 percutaneous coronary interventions, while being responsible for the program of the transcatheter renal denervation as well as for the program of transcatheter aortic valve implantation. As a member of the Task Force for the invasive management of the acute coronary syndromes, I have been involved in the adoption and development of a network in the Southwest of Greece for the Stent of Life program. I have completed, under the supervision of Prof. Vardas, my doctoral thesis entitled ?Correlation between coronary blood flow and indexes of myocardial ischemia in patients with intraventricular conduction disturbances of electrical impulse?, which was accepted by the University of Crete with a grade of Excellent on 22 of April, 2002.
