Dr Henry De'Ath

Honorary Lecturer

I am a Consultant in Upper GI and General Surgery, and an Honorary Clinical Lecturer in trauma at the C4TS. 

I completed a PhD at the C4TS and QMUL investigating the effects of trauma on the heart.

 I have a continued research interest in TISCI (Trauma Induced Secondary Cardiac Injury) and post-injury organ dysfunction.  

In particular, to further understand the mechanisms of these and establish therapeutic interventions designed to improve outcome.

In addition, I continue to participate in other aspects of trauma, Upper GI and General Surgery research.  I have a passion for education, both in the clinical and university settings, as well as an interest in humanitarian surgery and healthcare"

Research interests:

My main research interest lies in attempting to better understand TISCI (Trauma Induced Secondary Cardiac Injury).  In particular, to explore further the pathophysiological mechanisms that lead to the condition, and ultimately to establish management strategies designed to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with TISCI.
