Biography

I have performed >8.000 cardiac catheterizations, >2.500 PCIs (>800 primary PCIs) and I am fully competent in intra-coronary diagnostic techniques such as FFR, IVUS and OCT. I have performed all types of PCIs, including complex cases, such as left main, vein graft and bifurcation PCIs as well as use of rotational atherectomy (rotablator). I take part in my hospital’s on-call program for primary PCIs as an individual operator. I perform almost all of my catheterizations/ PCIs trans-radially, which was the field of my specialized interventional training in England.
My structural heart disease interests include treatment of aortic valve stenosis (valvuloplasty/ trans-catheter percutaneous aortic valve implantation -TAVI), which was the field of my specialized interventional training in Germany and led me to become one of the few Greek Cardiologists with a solo first operator Certification for the TAVI procedure (by Medtronic). I have taken part in >200 TAVI procedures (~250 in Germany, ~200 in Greece).
I am a member of the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Interventions.
I have been elected Nucleus Member of the Working Group of Interventional Cardiology of the Hellenic Society of Cardiology.
Besides my duties in the Emergency Department and in the Cardiology Ward, I am appointed as a Consultant/ Deputy Head in the Coronary Care Unit (14 beds). I have substantial experience in the treatment of patients with acute coronary syndromes, ST elevation myocardial infarction, cardiogenic shock and also in the management and weaning of intubated patients.
I am experienced in the placement of centrals lines (>1.000), temporary pacemakers (>800) (with and without fluoroscopy), pulmonary artery catheters (>400) (Swan-Ganz) and also in the placement and tuning of intra-aortic balloon pumps (>100).

Since 2000 I have taught to medical students, nursing students, ambulance crews, cardiology registrars and post-graduate doctors (MSc program). I also direct / teach in European Seminars of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in medical/ nursing personnel and civilians.
I have been elected President of the Working Group of Acute Cardiac Care and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation of the Hellenic Society of Cardiology.
I have supervised successful diagnostic and PCI cases during the development of the catheterization laboratory of DGH Tripolis, under official agreement between the two hospitals based on my substantial cathlab experience.
I have supervised successful TAVI cases during the development of the TAVI program of DGH Thessaloniki “Papageorgiou, as per law required and under official agreement between the two hospitals based on my TAVI experience.
