Vascular Disease & Endovascular Surgery Research

Endovascular Surgery Research

The convergence of advanced imaging and endovascular surgery has revolutionized care for patients with vascular disease. NYU Langone's vascular surgeons currently perform more endovascular reconstructions than any other hospital in the country.

Congenital Vascular Malformations

Worldwide expertise in multidisciplinary research and treatment of congenital vascular anomalies (birthmarks). New plastic surgery and endovascular approaches.

Carotid Stenting

New technologies for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis: carotid artery stenting and clinical trials for an arterial filter to reduce risk 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 to replace blocked and narrowed ones, lessening the chance of amputation.

Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Surgery

Examination of 2 minimally invasive varicose vein treatment techniques: vascular closure using radio waves and scope-based technology to remove 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 analyze the outcomes of carotid endarterectomy and identify factors responsible for 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 pseudo aneurysms 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.
