Studies

Participation in two international multicenter studies

  1. As Co – Investigator in the ENGAGE Registry. This is a multicenter prospective registry of the ENDURANT Stent graft (Medtronic) for endovascular treatment of abdominal aneurysm.
  2. As Co – Investigator to the “WALK” study for patients with intermittent Claudication. This was a study investigated the gene therapy treatment in patients with intermittent Claudication.  He participated under Mr George Geroulakos at Ealing και Hammersmith Hospital (Imperial Trust). The title of the study was  “A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group, Multicenter, Dose – Selection Study of Ad2/Hypoxia Inducible Factor HIF – 1alpha/VP16 in Patients with Intermittent Claudication “
  3. As a PhD candidate he investigated in an experimental protocol the protective effect of ATIII in lungs and heart in the ischemia reperfusion syndrome of the lower limb. A part of the results published in Annals of Vascular Surgery journal in May 2012.
