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 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.
