Petter Storsten got his MD in 2012 at University of Oslo. Since then he has been working as a PhD fellow.


His PhD work on "Dyssynchrony in the systemic and non-systemic right ventricle" focuses on the following:

1. The systemic right ventricle in adults with transposition of the great arteries

2. Right venticluar function during left bundle branch block and cardiac resynchronization therapy.

3. The effect of increased afterload on the left ventricle during left bundle branch block


Storsten has presented several abstracts at international and national congresses. So far Storsten has published the following articles:
