Our goal is to provide excellence in teaching, research and clinical care. The Department of Cardiovascular Medicine is known for its innovative approach to the diagnosis and development of long-term strategies for patients at risk for or with a history of heart disease. Our faculty members are experts in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, heart failure, cardiac imaging and vascular medicine, and have developed research, teaching, and patient care programs in all of these areas. We are one of the leading institutions among all University Hospitals in Japan. We provide highly-advanced medical care such as autologous peripheral blood mononuclear cell transplantation for ischemic cardiomyopathy as well as for critical limb ischemia. We conduct research on various kinds of cardiovascular diseases and we have been trying to establish innovative methods to treat diseases such as cardiac regenerative therapy and angiogenic therapy.
