Clinical outcomes in Vascular Surgery

We have continued to investigate clinical outcomes after standard vascular procedures, most recently in particular for carotid endarterectomy. We have also bee involved in a number of multicenter clinical trials.

We perform both conventional open vascular surgery and minimally invasive vascular interventions for vascular problems such as lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, carotid artery disease, aortic aneurysm, dialysis access, and venous disease.
