Research interests

Our research is currently concentrated on endovascular aortic repair, concerning the thoracic and abdominal aorta with special focus on different stent-grafts as potential treatment for dissections, aneurysms or ulcera. The goal is to further broaden the field of applicability and increase security of endovascular aortic therapies. To approach this goal we evaluate different devices and methods for actual applicability and design new solutions for potential development and improvements. To gain a broad perspective to these topics we work in multidisciplinary teams with cardiac and vascular specialists under supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Martin Funovics.
