Cardiovascular Surgery


The current laboratory research of the University Clinic for Cardiovascular Engineering is focused on the following projects:

  1. Myocardial Tissue Engineering: Engineering of contractile bio-artificial tissues for myocardial repair
  2. Non-Heart Beating Donors (NHBD): Evaluation of reperfusion strategies to promote the use of hearts obtained from donors after cardiac death (DCD)
  3. Myocardial Recovery: Evaluation of mechanisms leading to reverse remodeling of failing hearts
  4. Limb Ischemia/Reperfusion: Evaluation of genetic manipulations to protect the ischemic peripheral muscle against reperfusion injuries
