Vascular surgery

Vascular surgery

Vascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the western world. In order to prevent disease development and develop preventive strategies, a complete understanding of basic cellular and molecular mechanisms is necessary. Our group utilizes a translational platform with advanced cell- and molecular biology, animal models in combination with patient centred research to resolve target processes in peripheral vascular disease such as mechanisms related to thromboembolic carotid disease and stroke, pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysms, vascular repair processes and inflammation in association with interventional procedures and pulmonary hypertension. The close proximity between clinical vascular surgery and advanced molecular research creates a unique platform for the resolution of issues of immediate concern for clinical care as well as breeding of future clinical academic leadership.
