Clinical Interests

Dr Phen’s has a special interest in using advanced echocardiographic techniques in the assessment of heart valve and heart failure patients, as well as in the use of specialised pacemakers (cardiac resynchronisation therapy) to help restore proper coordination of heart muscle contraction.

Research Interests

Dr Phen’s PhD thesis was based on how lifestyle factors such as diet, obesity and physical exercise can interact and influence the health and performance of the cells that line the inside of all blood vessels (the vascular endothelium). The health of these cells is vital in determining one’s risk of heart attacks, strokes and other vascular disorders.

He has published in peer-reviewed journals and presented to international conferences on the subject. He continues this interest in his clinical practice, which is termed preventive cardiology. Additionally, he is an investigator in a current multicentre research trial on virtual clinic follow up of patients with cardiac pacemakers via the internet.
