Research Laboratory of Pathomorphology


The Research Laboratory of Pathomorphology studies the problems of cardiomorphology:

  • Study of the cardiac conduction system at the macroscopic (layer-preparation, organometry), histological (layered serial histological sections), histochemical, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural levels
  • Morphology, ethiology and pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation with morphometric, immunohistochemical studies
  • Right ventricular arrhythmogenic dysplasia with morphometric, immunohistochemical studies and differential diagnosis objectification
  • Ethiology and pathogenesis of myocarditis with a full range of cardiotropic viruses research
  • Ethiology and pathogenesis of acquired heart disease
  • Congenital cardiomyopathy with a full range of histochemical and immunohistochemical reactions to cardiomyocytes proteins
  • Sudden cardiovascular death
  • Vasculitis
  • Heart tumors
  • Endomyocardial biopsy study in heart transplant and various diseases.

New research directions of the laboratory:

  • Morphological study of myopathies and skeletal muscle dystrophy
  • Morpho-functional characteristics of the uterus at different ages and in CTD
  • Multifactorial evidence diagnosis of heart and vessels diseases-comparative MRI morphological study of macroscopic and histological sections in different projections
