Professional Statement
Her major interests in the field of clinical cardiac surgery include: surgery of the aorta, including aneurysms, especially major and major complex cases (Marfan), valve sparing aortic root replacement, aortic valve surgery, minimally invasive aortic valve procedure, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, beating heart surgery, and cardiac surgery in pregnant patients. She has contributed to advances in protecting the brain and has been instrumental in developing minimally invasive surgery.

Marjan Jahangiri operates on 280-300 cases per annum. This is one of the largest cardiac surgical services in the United Kingdom. Her overall mortality for all cases including major complex heart operations is 1.5 – 3.5%.

She has been the author of several reviews, book chapters, manuscripts, abstracts and communications. She is a regular invited speaker at national and international conferences. She is the principal investigator in a number of clinical research trials. She has chaired multi-disciplinary guidelines on management of coronary artery disease, aortic valve (minimally invasive) and aortic disease.
