Cardiology Department

The cardiology sector comprises three Cardiology Departments, an organised team of collaborators, and individual divisions with which the Departments maintain a direct link and cooperation.

The Departments offer the following services:

  • Diagnosis, management and treatment of all emergency and chronic heart conditions.
  • Prevention of heart diseases, at both the patient monitoring level and the level of public education, with lectures and scientific presentations.
  • Diagnostic examinations, including transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography (modern techniques), myocardial scintigraphy, computed tomography and cardiac MRI.
  • Collaboration between the Interventional Cardiology, Electrophysiology and Percutaneous Valve Divisions.
  • Assessment of cardio-oncological patients and genetic testing of inherited cardiomyopathies and arrhythmogenic ventricular conditions.

The Cardiology Departments conduct extensive research and have ongoing publications in international medical journals. In many cases they act as the national coordinating centre for Greece in international clinical trials—the most recent examples being ONTARGET and TRANSCEND for cardiovascular disease, ACTIVERO and AVERROES for atrial fibrillation, and Helios and Rafting—with related publications in prestigious international journals.
In addition, the Departments undertake to train new doctors in the department and in the cardiology laboratory.
