Dr. Ndrepepa’s main focus of research activity has been clinical electrophysiology of supraventricular tachycardias (mechanisms and ablation), coronary artery disease (efficacy of reperfusion and myocardial salvage, reperfusion injury and coronary no-reflow, cardiac biomarkers, complication of coronary interventions with special focus on bleeding complications, plasma lipids and progression/regression of coronary atherosclerosis), cardiac imaging, antithrombotic drugs and cardiovascular diabetology.

Ongoing research addresses prognostic value of reperfusion markers, cardiac biomarkers, and efficacy of novel antithrombotic drugs and progression/regression of coronary atherosclerosis.
