I am an Interventional Cardiologist in Cardiology Department of Nicosia General Hospital since June 2011. My duties include Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI) including Primary PCIs in acute myocardial infarction, rotablation coronary angioplasties, use of Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and Pressure wire (iFR/FFR), ASD/PFO closure, Aortic Valvuloplasty in severe Aortic Valve stenosis and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). During the period of May 2010 to May 2011 I was a Fellow in Interventional Cardiology in Leeds General Infirmary, UK, with a training grant awarded by EAPCI. I studied medicine in the Medical School of National Kapodistrian University of Athens and completed my training in Cardiology in hospitals of Greece and Cyprus. My PhD was done in association with the Medical School of National University of Athens (Topic: Associations of MTHFR mutations and hyperhomocysteinemia in young men with myocardial infarction). I am currently a Scientific collaborator of the Medical School of University of Cyprus, Scientific collaborator of the School of Medicine of the European University of Cyprus and Honorary Assistant Professor of University of Nicosia Medical School. I am also involved in the teaching of the Cardiology trainees of the Cardiology department of Nicosia General Hospital. I am an instructor of the European Resuscitation Council for the Advance Life Support (ALS) courses and I am currently the Chairman of the Cyprus Resuscitation Council. I am also the Vice President of the Cyprus Interventional Cardiology Working Group.
