Research on valvular heart disease

Reading time: 1 min

The main lines of research is focused on:

  • Benefits of renin-angiotensin system blockade on clinical evolution and ventricular remodelling after inserting a percutaneous aortic prosthesis.
  • Coronary revascularisation after implantation of a percutaneous aortic prosthesis.
  • Usefulness of amiodarone for preventing new-onset atrial fibrillation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation.
  • Comparison between an antithrombotic strategy based on rivaroxaban and an antiplatelet strategy after implanting a percutaneous aortic prosthesis (GALILEO)
  • MitraClips in patients who do not respond to cardiac resynchronisation therapy.
  • Use of decellularised homografts on the aortic valve;
  • Minimally invasive, completely thoracoscopic mitral valve repair.
  • Using new developments in valve prostheses and mitral rings.
