The MFM Global Registry has published a computational study on the Multilayer Flow Modulator device, used in the treatment of symptomatic chronic type B aortic dissection.

This study has been published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery.

The study concluded that the SMFM reduces the false lumen wall pressure through flow modulation. It preserves patency of all branches, minimizing the incidence of short-term complications.

The SMFM is a valuable option in managing primary symptomatic chronic type B aortic dissection, without midterm complications.

Outgoing ISVS president Professor Alan Dardik meets incoming ISVS president Professor Sherif Sultan at this years VEITHsymposium

The Western Vascular was extremely successful at this years Veith symposium.

First and Second prize for the best clinical paper and cost effectiveness paper went to the Irish team, Esraa Hegazy (1st) and Patrick Canning (2nd), both from the WVI. Congratulations!!

Top NUIG students also won awards for best research on AAA, carotid surgery and overall academic achievement.

All VEITHsymposium and International Society For Vascular Surgery, Inc. associate faculty abstracts have been published in a special supplement of Vascular.
A huge thank you to everyone who made the supplement a fantastic success.

As this years president, the ISVS Symposium will be hosted in Sibiu, Romania with a special theme.

New publication in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery

Insights from complex aortic surgery with a Streamliner device for aortic arch repair (STAR)

This article is a computational study on six patient specific aortic arch anatomies treated with the MFM device. Correct placement of the MFM device was shown to not only reduce aortic pressure but also increase distal perfusion. Incorrect placement was found to promote failure mode I.
