European Society of Cardiology

Joost Daemen is a senior interventional cardiologist at the Thorax Center, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. In 2005, he finished medical school at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Between 2005 and 2008, he completed a PhD project entitled “The caveats of drug-eluting stents – a critical appraisal of the safety concerns”. After obtaining his PhD Cum Laude, he commenced his clinical training and interventional cardiology training partly at the Thorax Center in Rotterdam and partly at the Insel Spital in Bern, Switzerland. At present, Dr. Daemen is participating in cathlab related activities including complex PCI like the use of left ventricular assist devices, intracoronary imaging, cardiac physiology, and structural heart interventions including TAVI, Mitraclip, and renal sympathetic denervation. Next to his clinical activities Dr. Daemen is highly active in cardiovascular research with a specific focus on intracoronary imaging and physiology, co-authored over 200 peer reviewed
