Interventional Cardiology Fellows
Konstantinos Stathogiannis, MD
Dr Konstantinos Stathogiannis graduated from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary and then returned to his hometown of Athens, Greece to complete internal medicine residency and general cardiology fellowship (University of Athens). He has also completed fellowships in heart transplant patients and mechanical circulatory assist devices at Harefield Hospital, in intracoronary physiology/imaging at the Essex Cardiothoracic Center (both in the United Kingdom) and cardiac MRI at the University of Chicago. His PhD at the University of Athens focused on novel imaging modalities which aim to detect vascular plaque inflammation in vivo. Additionally, he has a Masters in Healthcare Finance and Policy. Dr Stathogiannis’ main clinical and research interest is structural heart disease and transcatheter valve interventions. He is an investigator in multiple clinical studies and has published extensively. Currently, his research objectives are to explore mechanisms of bioprosthetic valve failure and to address the limitations of current devices, including long-term valve durability. Konstantinos sits on the Editorial Board of Structural Interventional Cardiology for Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine and serves as an Associate Editor at European Heart Journal – Case Reports. He spends his free time with his wonderful wife, Antonia and son, Evangelo.
Kulin Shah, MD
