Interventional cardiology and acute coronary syndromes - development of novel strategies for early detection and advanced treatment
The subprogram will focus on the development of novel technologies and therapeutic strategies that will improve the treatment of coronary heart disease including acute coronary syndromes. A substantial part of this research project will also aim at developing new technologies for the treatment of central and peripheral vascular diseases.
In particular, it will involve the following projects:
- The development of new coronary stents using hi-tech bio- and nanotechnologies to prolong stent durability and ensure better stent acceptance
- The development of new artificial vessels using hi-tech bio- and nanotechnologies to prolong artificial vessel durability and to ensure better vessel acceptance
- The development of an original register enabling the comparison of different types of treatment in patients with acute myocardial infarction with simultaneous significant stenosis at non-infarct coronary arteries
Research program scientific coordination:
The international coordinator is Gurpreet S. Sandhu, M.D., Ph.D., an associate professor of medicine at Mayo Medical School. Dr. Sandhu is an expert with more than 20 years experience and practices in cardiology and internal medicine with interest in molecular and cellular research.
The national coordinator is Ota Hlinomaz, M.D., Ph.D., who is the Head of the Coronary Care Unit at FNUSA. Dr. Hlinomaz is a leading Czech expert in the field of interventional and acute cardiology. Dr. Hlinomaz has participated in the project preparation since 2004.
