About the Author



Demosthenes Katritsis, Director, Dept Cardiology, Athens Euroclinic, Greece Hon Consultant Cardiologist, St Thomas' Hospital, London, UK,A. John Camm, Professor of Clinical Cardiology, Division of Clinical Sciences, St. George's University of London,Bernard J. Gersh, Professor of Medicine, Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Graduate School of Medicine

Dr Katritsis performs all kinds of interventional cardiology procedures such as coronary angioplasty, mitral valvuloplasty, percutaneous cardiac defects closure, and TAVI procedures. In addition, he has extensive experience in all aspects of electrophysiology such as diagnostic electrophysiology studies, catheter ablation procedures, and implantation of biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators.
Dr Katritsis runs an active, multidisciplinary research program and has published over 220 original articles in international journals on most aspects of cardiology but mainly on interventional cardiology, coronary circulation, and ablation of arrhythmias. He has participated in most European and American textbooks of cardiology with contribution of chapters.


Professor John Camm qualified in 1971. He worked at Guy's Hospital before working at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London. In 1986 he moved to St. George's Hospital Medical School in London as Professor of Clinical Cardiology (British Heart Foundation). Professor Camm was elected the Chairman of Medicine in October 1990, a post rotated from in 1995. He is now the Chairman of the Division of Cardiac and Vascular Sciences at St. George's University of London. His major speciality is cardiac arrhythmias but he is also much involved in clinical cardiac electrophysiology, cardiac pacemakers, risk stratification in post myocardial infarction, heart failure and cardiomyopathy patients. He has a major interest in cardiovascular safety of cardiac and non-cardiac drugs. John has given over 1500 lectures to national and international audiences, written more than 1000 peer review papers and over 250 detailed reviews. He has authored and edited numerous books.

Dr. Gersh's wide interests include the natural history and therapy of acute and chronic coronary artery disease, clinical electrophysiology and in particular atrial fibrillation and sudden cardiac death, the cardiomyopathies and the clinical implications of molecular genetics in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, cardiac stem cell therapy and the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in the developing world. Dr. Gersh is the editor of 13 books and is on the editorial board of 25 journals including Circulation, Journal of the American College of Cardiology (Senior Consulting Editor), Nature Cardiovascular Medicine,and The European Heart Journal (2009 Deputy Editor). He is a member of the Advisory Board of the Reynolds Foundation, a Past Chairman of the Council of Clinical Cardiology of the American Heart Association, an at large member of the World Heart Federation's Scientific and Policy Initiatives Committee (SPIC).
