Reading time: 1 min
  • Protective effects of the Mediterranean diet in the prevention of chronic degenerative diseases (cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer).
  • Effects of the moderate consumption of wine and beer on cardiovascular health.
  • Effects of other foods in cardiovascular health: olive oil, nuts, cocoa, tomatoes and others.
  • Pathophysiology of arterial hypertension: mechanisms involved in increased blood pressure.
  • Complete evaluation of hypertensive patients: study of the morphology and physical properties of arteries.
  • Treatment of hypertension: strategies for implementing lifestyle changes, combination drug therapy (polypills), interventional therapy (baroreceptor stimulation, renal denervation).
  • Vascular risk factors associated with hypertension: study into the impact of the relationship between high blood pressure and diabetes, dyslipidaemia (high levels of lipids: cholesterol, triglycerides or both) and tobacco.
  • Pathophysiology of heart failure: study of the mechanisms of heart failure development in patients with high cardiovascular risk, as well as the mechanisms that influence the prognosis for their evolution.
  • Pathophysiology of ageing: study of the mechanisms involved in vascular ageing and associated with an increase in blood pressure. 
  • Thromboembolic disease: prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patients with venous thromboembolism.
