Dr Thomas Kahan is Senior consultant in cardiolgy at the Department of cardiology, Danderyd University Hospital

Research Interest : My main research interests are related to neurohormonal mechanisms in the control of blood pressure and cardiac function, with a focus on structural myocardial and vascular changes in hypertension, hypertesive heart disease, the transition from hypertension to heart failure, and on neuroendocrine regulatory mechanisms in heart failure. In particular, we study effects of the sympathetic nervous system and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in this context. Other areas of interest are cardiovacular risk assesment and prevention, and health economics and implementation of treatment.
