Pier David Lambiase
Consultant Cardiologist, London

BA, BM, BCh, PhD, MRCP(UK), NASPExAM

Professor Pier Lambiase is a Consultant Cardiologist (Heart Specialist), in London specialising in the treatment of angina (chest pain), heart attack, heart failure, high blood pressure and cholesterol, heart rhythm abnormalities and heart valve disease.  He also specialises in the treatment of all arrhythmias and implants pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD’s) and biventricular devices for heart failure.  

 

About Dr Lambiase, a London Cardiologist

Professor Lambiase is a Consultant Cardiologist specialising in the treatment of heart rhythm disorders and pacemaker implantation. He graduated from Oxford University in 1992 and trained in Cardiology at St Thomas’ and Hammersmith Hospitals. Following completion of a PhD in 2002 he undertook higher specialist training in Electrophysiology and became a Consultant Cardiologist & Senior Lecturer at the Heart Hospital, UCL in 2006. He was the British Cardiac Society Young Investigator (YI) in 2002 and finalist in the North American Pacing & Electrophysiology Society (NASPE) YI competition in the same year.

 

Pier Lambiase conducts research in the causes & treatment of inherited rhythm disturbances at the Heart Hospital and a nationally recognised SADS (Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) clinic screening families. He has the co-written Heart Rhythm UK Guidelines on genetic testing and the management of these conditions and published over 40 peer-reviewed papers in Cardiology. He is an Editor of the Oxford Handbook of Inherited Cardiovascular Disease and the Panel Lead for the Royal College of Physicians Map of Medicine pathways in arrhythmia management.

 

Expertise in arrhythmias, angina and other heart conditions 

Professor Lambiase treats patients with palpitations, breathlessness, dizziness and blackouts (syncope). He has extensive experience in managing patients with all common cardiac conditions such as angina (chest pain), heart attack, heart failure, heart rhythm abnormalities and heart valve disease. He also regularly sees patients for cardiovascular risk assessment, treatment for high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

 

He specialises in the treatment of all arrhythmias and implants pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs - both conventional and recently licensed subcutaneous devices: S-ICDs:  www.cameronhealth.com/product-info.htm and biventricular devices for heart failure.

  

Pier performs ablation of abnormal heart rhythms: Supraventricular arrhythmias (SVT) including atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial flutter, Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome and ventricular tachycardia (VT). He manages rarer inherited arrhythmia syndromes including long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome, Catecholiminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT).

    Clinical interests

  • Professor Lambiase's main areas of expertise in cardiology involve treating patients with palpitations, breathlessness, black-outs and severe dizzy spells. He specialises in the treatment of all arrhythmias and implants pacemakers, internal cardiac defibrillators and biventricular devices for heart failure. He performs ablation of abnormal heart rhythms: Supraventricular arrhythmias (SVT) including atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial flutter, Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome and ventricular tachycardia (VT). He treats patients with heart failure and manages rarer inherited arrhythmia syndromes including long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome, Catecholiminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT). He performs screening of families for these inherited arrhythmia disorders in a specialist SADS (Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) clinic and treats patients with a previous cardiac arrest in whom no clear cause has been identified. 

    Research interests

    • Inherited arrhythmia disorders (long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome, Catecholiminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT)
    • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopthy (ARVC)
    • Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome family screening (SADS)
    • Ablation of atrial fibrillation using conventional techniques and Ablation Frontiers technology
    • Improvement of atrial fibrillation ablation by targeting triggers employing novel signal processing techniques
    • Development of the s-ICD, a very small intra-cardiac defibrillator that is implanted under the skin of the chest wall, reducing the risk of infection and complications.

If prior referral is needed before a consultation, then you will first need to ask your General Practitioner to refer you to the consultant. If no prior referral is required, then you can go straight to the consultant without the need to see your GP.
