He released over 650 medical papers and 14 books, and had various features inside of clinical forums of prestigious journals. furthermore he expert greater than a hundred and twenty cardiologists in medical cardiac electrophysiology.
at the party of the congress `2000, way forward for Arrhythmology: classes From the prior, grants For Tomorrow', we spotlight the medical paintings of Prof. Hein J.J.
