A large part of Dr Byrne’s practice is concerned with the treatment of coronary artery disease including angioplasty and stent procedures. He also treats patients with valvular heart disease with new treatments which do not require an operation such as TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve implantation) and Mitraclip (percutaneous treatment of the mitral valve). Dr Byrne performs a number of imaging tests for the heart including transoesophageal echocardiography and cardiac CT scanning.
Dr Byrne qualified from the University of Bristol and was awarded a PhD from the University of London in 2004. He undertook interventional cardiology training at Kings from 2005-06 and subsequently as a Boston Scientific fellow in Western Canada in 2006-07
