Dr. Schwartz is the Director of the Center for Cardiac Arrhythmias of Genetic Origin and of the Cardiovascular Genetics Laboratory at the Istituto Auxologico Italiano in Milan, Italy. His major areas of interest and expertise are long QT syndrome 9LQTS), risk stratification for sudden death, and the relationship between autonomic nervous system and life-threatening arrhythmias. In the 70s and 80s, he actually developed left cardiac sympathetic denervation (LCSD)!
