Clinical interests

Dr Brull’s main interest and specialist training is in percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty and stenting). This procedure is designed to alleviate angina (chest pain caused by poor blood flow to the heart), whereby a small balloon and expandable stent ("scaffolding") is inserted across blockages in the coronary arteries to restore blood flow. This procedure is also the most efficient method of treating heart attacks.

In addition to his work in the field of coronary artery disease, Dr Brull runs a specialist perioperative risk assessment clinic for patients prior to elective general and bariatric surgery, working with a large multi-disciplinary team in order to reduce perioperative risk.
