Research Interests: Disease of the aorta, congenital and acquired. Treatment of aortic pathology, including development of stent graft systems. Patterns of disease in patients treated with mediastinal radiation. Valvular heart disease, especially aortopathy associated with congenital bicuspid aortic valve.
To Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy for GORE TAG Thoracic Endoprosthesis in the Treatment of Thoracic Aortic Disease
PURPOSE OF RESEARCH:
Endovascular stent-graft repair of aortic pathologies is a minimally-invasive alternative to
open surgery that may decrease morbidity and mortality, particularly in high risk patients.
Optimal patient selection, based on pathology and anatomy, is being defined. Technically
successful implantation requires adequate assessment of pathology and anatomy, and
development and execution of novel and delicate procedures that resolve the pathology while
minimizing morbidity and mortality.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
