Cardiovascular Sciences, Kulak Kortrijk Campus KU Leuven


Research in the Laboratory for Thrombosis Research (Karen Vanhoorelbeke, Simon De Meyer, Hans Deckmyn) at the Kulak campus of KU Leuven focuses on the molecular mechanisms by which the hemostatic proteins von Willebrand factor (VWF) and its cleaving enzyme ADAMTS13 contribute to health and disease. We perform fundamental research to understand the role of VWF and ADAMTS13 in hemostasis, bleeding, thrombosis and (thrombo)inflammatory ...

Correlations between echocardiographic, angiocardiographic and anatomical data in children with congenital heart malformations. Exercice tolerance studies in children before and after surgery for congenital heart malformations (gas exchange, determination of the ventilatory anaerobic threshold). (in collaboration with Dr. T. Reybrouck).

Cardiovascular Research and Engineering Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The recording of the electrocardiogram (ECG) remains the cornerstone for the clinical diagnosis of each cardiac disease. The ECG records the electrical activity of the heart on the body surface and produces images that are characteristic of both normal and abnormal conditions. Unfortunately, the conventional ECG records that electrical activity in a limited number of sites on the torso and falls thus short in providing the cardiologist with ...
