Doctor Marco Spartera

University of Oxford, Oxford (United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland)

Dr. Spartera works at the John Radcliffe Hospital and is a clinical research fellow at St Peter's college - University of Oxford. Dr Spartera is a cardiologist specialized in non-invasive cardiac imaging with a particular focus on cardiovascular MRI, CT, and echocardiography. His medical degree (2011) and cardiology specialist degree (2017) were both awarded with top marks at the San Raffaele University (Milan, Italy). His doctoral research, funded by NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, is focused on studying mechanisms of cardioembolism and developing novel imaging biomarkers to predict risk of ischaemic stroke. Dr. Spartera is also an investigator of LOSE-AF trial (NCT03713775), a Randomized Controlled Trial to investigate whether in older overweight/obese patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) weight loss can improve AF outcomes and physical performance as compared to usual care.

A pro-thrombotic left atrial haemodynamic profile is present in older individuals with cardiovascular risk factors even without atrial fibrillation
