Cardiology Research Team

The Cardiology Research Team at Ashford & St Peter’s have attended the prestigious European Heart Failure Congress in Vienna this year, to present the interim results of their research into Acute Heart Failure.

The team, led by Consultant Cardiologist Dr Aigul Baltabaeva, have been working for the past year and a half on research looking at prognostic markers and financial consequences of acute heart failure, with a specific focus on the effects of mitral regurgitation. This helps to predict outcomes in patients and enables treatment to be relaxed or intensified according to need.

Presenting at the European Heart Failure congress is an incredible opportunity to disseminate the work the team has been doing for the last year which is now beginning to demonstrate interesting results. The team presented posters outlining some of the conclusions from the data so far, and discussed these results with other interested delegates from around Europe.
