Research and scholarship
Professor Mamas' research group main interest is the outcomes research using large-scale national and international electronic healthcare records 'Big Data' from patients with cardiovascular disease. Our work focusses around the analysis of large datasets with electronic health records derived from hundreds of millions of patients from primary, secondary and tertiary care.
Using specialist cardiovascular datasets from the National Institute of Cardiovascular Outcomes Research (NICOR) and primary care via the Clinical Practice Research Database (CPRD), as well as international datasets including the National Inpatient Sample and National Readmissions Dataset from the United States Healthcare Cost and Utilisation Project (HCUP), our aims is to improve the care of patients with cardiovascular disease.
His research group has a particular interest in percutaneous coronary intervention, acute coronary syndromes, structural cardiac interventions, heart failure and comorbidity. Their work focusses around the assessment of the treatment efficacy, capturing rare complications from cardiovascular treatments/interventions, studying long-term outcomes of patients with cardiovascular diseases, and developing risk stratification models for benchmarking and risk stratification.
For example, they have developed the national Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation risk score to allow for risk stratification in these procedures on behalf of the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society.
Professor Mamas has published over 250 manuscripts.
Professor Mamas leads and co-supervises a number of doctoral and masters students. He is also a clinical and educational supervisor to a number of junior doctors and specialist registrars.
