CRY Consultant Cardiologist Dr Sanjay Sharma has been voted onto the EACPR Sports Cardiology Section Nucleus – an elite committee within the European Society of Cardiology which aims to tackle the complex issues of sports cardiology.
Sanjay is the only British representative on this group, and this further endorses him as one of the leading Sports Cardiologist in the world. He has recently contributed outstanding research in the field of young sudden cardiac death, with papers such as:
- Ethnic differences in left ventricular remodeling in highly-trained athletes relevance to differentiating physiologic left ventricular hypertrophy from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. – Basavarajaiah, Sandeep; Boraita, Araceli; Whyte, Gregory; Wilson, Mathew; Carby, Lorna; Shah, Ajay; Sharma, Sanjay
- Prevalence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in highly trained athletes: relevance to pre-participation screening. Basavarajaiah, Sandeep; Wilson, Matthew; Whyte, Gregory; Shah, Ajay; McKenna, William; Sharma, Sanjay
- Prevalence and significance of an isolated long QT interval in elite athletes. – Basavarajaiah, Sandeep; Wilson, Matthew; Whyte, Gregory; Shah, Ajay; Behr, Elijah; Sharma, Sanjay
We are lucky indeed to have Sanjay heading the CRY screening programme.
