Vascular Disease and Endovascular Surgery Research

Endovascular Surgery Research
The convergence of advanced imaging and endovascular surgery hasrevolutionized care for patients with vascular disease. NYU’s vascularsurgeons currently perform more endovascular reconstructions than anyother hospital in the country,

Congenital Vascular Malformations
Worldwide expertise in multidisciplinary research and treatment ofcongenital vascular anomalies (birthmarks). New plastic surgery andendovascular approaches.

Carotid Stenting
New technologies for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis: carotidartery stenting and clinical trials for an arterial filter to reducerisk of stroke.

Limb Salvage Through Angiogenesis 
Use of angiogenesis techniques to prompt the body to heal, on demand,the condition of arterial insufficiency by growing new blood vessels, lessening the chance of amputation.

Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Surgery
Examinationof 2 minimally invasive varicose vein treatment techniques: endovascular closure using radiowaves. and scope-based technology toremove varicose veins without surgical incisions.

Stent Grafts for Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
Evaluation of the Excluder Endograft, a new and improved stent used to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Improving Outcomes of Carotid Endarterectomy
NIH-funded research study of all New York State hospitals to analyzethe outcomes of carotid endarterectomy and identify factors responsible or the rare complications involved with this procedure.

MRA for Treatment of Lower Extremity Arterial Occlusive Disease
Evaluation of noninvasive MRA technique to replace invasive angiography to direct treatment of lower extremity artery disease.

Multidisciplinary Treatment of Visceral Artery Pseudoaneurysms
Use of covered stents to treat visceral artery pseudoaneurysms without surgical incision.

Carotid Endarterectomy in a City Hospital Population
Evaluation of city hospital patients with carotid artery stenosis to determine the necessity for extensive cardiac evaluations prior to carotid surgery.
