Research

 

Dr. Lozonschi’s experimental research focuses on endovascular surgery and transcatheter heart valve therapies. He also has an active basic science project to study angiogenesis in myocardial engineering and regeneration in the in-vivo models that he developed in Japan. Dr. Lozonschi has published surgical training models for experimental robotic closure of atrial septal defects.
