Chong, Aun-Yeong

Sommaire 

Le Dr Aun-Yeong Chong est cardiologue interventionniste à l’Institut de cardiologie de l’Université d’Ottawa (ICUO) et professeur adjoint au Département de médecine de l’Université d’Ottawa.

Parcours 

Titulaire d’un baccalauréat ès sciences (médecine) et d’un doctorat en médecine et en chirurgie (MBBS) avec mention d’excellence de l’Université de New South Wales, à Sydney, en Australie, le Dr Chong a poursuivi sa formation au Royaume-Uni (R.-U.) où il a obtenu le titre de MRCP en 2001. Il détient en outre un doctorat en médecine que lui a remis l’Université de Birmingham en 2006 à l’issue de ses travaux de recherche à l’Unité d’hémostase, de thrombose et de biologie vasculaire du Birmingham City Hospital et du dépôt de sa thèse intitulée « Endothelial Function in Congestive Heart Failure ». Après une spécialisation en cardiologie dans la région des Midlands de l’Ouest, R.-U., il a suivi en 2008 et 2009 une formation spécialisée en cardiologie interventionnelle à l’ICUO.

Le Dr Chong, qui occupait depuis 2010 les fonctions de cardiologue interventionniste consultant au Royaume-Uni, est entré au service de l’ICUO en juin 2013 à titre de cardiologue.

Intérêts cliniques et de recherche 

Dans le domaine clinique, le Dr Chong s’intéresse aux interventions coronariennes percutanées (ICP) dans le traitement des occlusions chroniques totales, à l’imagerie intravasculaire et à l’ICP transradiale. Ses travaux de recherche portent notamment sur l’ICP transradiale, la thrombose, la fonction endothéliale, la biologie des progéniteurs endothéliaux et la mobilisation des cellules souches dans l’infarctus du myocarde.
