Ivo Čikeš, Croatian doctor born in Žeževica near Omis, October 1, 1938. After completing his medical studies in Zagreb in 1964, he worked in the internal department of the hospital in Split. From 1977 he worked in Zagreb at the Institute (after the Clinic) for heart and blood vessel diseases, and his head was from 1991 to 2003. There, in 1978, he founded and headed the Department of Non-Invasive Cardiac Diagnostics, which is the Reference Centre for Echocardiography of the European Society of Cardiology and a collaborative centre of the World Health Organization. He is particularly concerned with ehocardiography, so he was the first in the medical literature to describe some of the ehocardiographic findings. With a group of engineers, he constructed ultrasonically labeled catheters and electrodes. He was a full professor at the Zagreb School of Medicine. Since 2000 is a fellow of the Croatian Academy of Sciences. He was president of the European Society of Cardiology ‘s Ehocardiography (1984-89), then chancellor of the society. He received the Award for Science Research “Nikola Tesla” (1985) and the National Lifetime Achievement Award (2005).
