Aortic Care Research
In addition to providing current state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatment for aortic disease, Cedars-Sinai is actively pursuing the solutions of the future. One area of leading-edge research in progress at Cedars-Sinai focuses on the underlying cause of aortic disease.
The significant variation in the presentation of individual patients and families with aortic aneurysm and dissection has prompted investigation regarding the genetic abnormalities that may be involved. Experts at the Aortic Program are involved with investigational use of newest minimally-invasive techniques including branch-vessel stent grafting from the aortic valve to the iliac artery bifurcation.
