Cardiology and cardiac surgery

The research area consists of Angiology and Diseases of Coagulation, Cardiosurgery, Pediatric Cardiosurgery, Cardiology, Pediatric and Adolescent Cardiology and Experimental Cardiology.

The activities in this area are:

Cardiac surgery

The research areas are primarily aortic surgery, arrhythmias, heart valves, pulmonary hypertension, and cardiac insufficiency.

Cardiology

The main research areas are interventional hemodynamics, cardiomyopathy, echocardiography, electrophysiology and cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac insufficiency, aortic syndromes, pulmonary hypertension, and intensive care.

Angiology and Diseases of Coagulation

The research concerns the diagnosis and therapy of polyvasculopathies (cerebrovascular insufficiency and peripheral arterial diseases) of venous thromboembolism and congenital and acquired hemorrhagic diseases.

Pediatric and Cardiology

Research activities in the field of congenital or acquired heart diseases in prenatal, pediatric, and adolescent patients.

Pediatric and Adolescent Cardiosurgery

This is the only Pediatric and Adolescent Cardiosurgery center in the Emilia-Romagna region which is accredited for the surgical treatment of congenital heart disease. The research activity consists of the surgical treatment of congenital heart disease in neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients.
