What is Ahmed Elghamaz’s training and experience?
Consultant cardiologist Ahmed Elghamaz’s showcases his education and experience in cardiology.
Hi, my name is Ahmed Elghamaz, and I am Egyptian. I graduated from Cairo in 1996 and, at the moment, I am a consultant cardiologist. After finishing my junior training in Brighton, I moved to London, where I did all my specialist training at the level, and I became a consultant in 2012.
Since becoming a consultant, I developed a particular interest in really two areas. One is the treatment of difficult blockages in the arteries, what we call chronic total occlusion, and the other areas of interest to me are the measurement of the significance of a narrowing across the artery with what we call a fractional flow reserve or conundrum flow reserve. And I was lucky to meet a fantastic team where we developed a category really from scratch over the last five years, what it’s now becoming a product that people can use.
