Current Programs in Cardiovascular Surgery
Currently, Dr. Gorav Ailawadi and Dr. Ravi Ghanta are working on research concerning Aaortic Aneurysms and Ventricular Restoration. Click on their program below to learn more about their specific research projects:
Aortic aneurysms and dissections are the 15th leading cause of death in the U.S. There is no proven medical therapy to treat or prevent aortic aneurysms. Our lab has over 25 years combined experience in investigating aneurysms. In addition to a robust lab studying abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA- LINK), we have developed expertise in thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA). TAAs are distinct from other aneurysms with many patients having a genetic component.
