The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery has a robust research program. Among the projects our surgeons are currently pursuing with the goal of advancing treatment are:

  • Carotid stenting for those at high risk for undergoing traditional carotid artery surgery. Although stenting is less invasive, carotid endarterectomy is extremely safe and effective and is the procedure of choice for most people. There are, however, patients who may benefit from this minimally invasive procedure. These research studies are evaluating the efficacy and safety of carotid stenting as an alternative in people who are risky surgical candidates, such as people with severe lung or heart disease or those that have previously undergone a carotid endarterectomy.
  • Evaluation of endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms as an alternative to traditional open surgery. A recent study undertaken by our surgeons and published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery revealed that the minimally invasive procedure resulted in a better survival rate and shorter recovery time.
  • Our NIH funded basic science lab is exploring the mechanisms of intimal hyperplasia – the physiologic process responsible for the narrowing of an artery to reoccur after it has been treated.
  • Long-term, clinical outcome studies of minimally invasive treatments for carotid, aortic and lower extremity arterial disease
  • Clinical trials of stent grafts for the treatment of thoracic aneurysms
  • Evaluation of the efficacy of using computer-based surgery simulators to train surgeons in minimally invasive techniques.
