About

  • Biography icon plus

    Mr Conal Austin graduated from Belfast university in 1986. He underwent Cardiothoracic training in Belfast from 1990 to 1995; at the Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne with Dr T Karl in 1996; and the Chef De Service Hopital Broussais, Paris, with Professor Carpentier in 1997. In November 1997 he was appointed Consultant at Guy's and St Thomas'.

    Mr Austin performs the full complement of paediatric neonatal infant and adult congenital surgical cases and holds a special interest in paediatric valvular conservative repairs, Minimal Access paediatric cardiac repairs, intra-operative 3D echocardiography, Ross operations and Norwood procedures.

    Mr Austin also specialises in Aortic support therapy, Personalised External Aortic Root Support (PEARS) and he currently has the largest experience in this new technique. The PEARS procedure has been designed to support dilatation of the aorta in people with connective tissue disorders such as Marfans disease, Loeys Dietz syndrome, Bicuspid aortopathies (BAV) or idiopathic aortopathies. He has pioneered the use of PEARS to support the aortic root in the Ross operation: enabling the Ross operation to have extended clinical application in cases of aortic valve regurgitation with associated dilatation of the aortic root.

    Mr Austin provides the surgical expertise in Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) surgery. Further specialist interests include: renal cell tumour with extensive Inferior Vena Cavae involvement, working with Urological surgeons for tumour extrication, and "The Cone repair" for cases of Ebstein's malformation of the Tricuspid valve.
