Y-graft aortic repair
Content

Fellows are encouraged to participate in clinical research opportunities by designing a research project based on their specific interests within aortic surgery. With approval, fellows may access de-identified data from the Aortic Surgery clinical database. Our robust data covers up to 3 decades of open and endovascular aortic repairs and is now prospectively collected by dedicated clinical research staff.

Research efforts are supported by a team of clinical research staff, including editorial and statistical assistance. Fellows are encouraged to submit formal abstracts to academic conferences such as those held by the American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS), the AATS Aortic Symposium, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and the Southern Thoracic Surgical Association. Several outstanding papers and presentations have been prepared by fellows in this training program.
