Dr Adrian Banning
Interventional Cardiology,Valvular Heart Disease,Echocardiography,
I am a consultant cardiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, a University Teaching Hospital providing tertiary care for a population of 1.3m people covering Gloucestershire to Buckinghamshire. I work as both an interventional cardiologist and participate in general cardiology. I have on call responsibilities for the full range of regional centre cardiology and am responsible for all emergency procedures - the catheter lab, two days in five. Our cardiac catheter labs perform more than 1400 interventional procedures and 3000 diagnostic procedures per year. I perform coronary intervention; four sessions per week in two cardiac catheterlaboratories and 400 coronary intervention procedures per annum including multi-vessel angioplasty and primary angioplasty for AMI. I introduced intravascular ultrasound to our laboratory and I have a particular interest in the use of drug eluting stents. Our centre was one of the first research sites in the UK; it has extensive experience with this technology. I am accredited with the British Society of Echocardiography to adult proficiency level and have 10 years experience in transoesophageal echocardiography as well as a research interest in the diagnosis and management of thoracic dissection and intramural aortic haematoma. Over the last 10 years I have established an international reputation amongst interventional cardiologists and was listed as one of the top ten interventional cardiologists in the UK by the Daily Mail in 2011.
