Carondelet Heart and Vascular Institute Hosts Training For National Vascular Specialists

Mar 26, 2017
Tucson, AZ, August 10, 2017 – The Carondelet Heart & Vascular Institute at St. Mary’s Hospital is training surgeons on the use of a new type of stent graft that offers a less invasive surgical option for repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.  Carondelet Heart and Vascular Institute vascular surgeon, Scott Berman, M.D., was the first in Arizona to use this stent and now is teaching the techniques to other surgeons from across the country.

Stent Training PhotoWith this stent, surgeons use a CT angiogram to make precise measurements, so the stent can be customized to fit the size of each patient’s aorta. While stents grafts have been used for many years, these are custom made for each patient. The stents are the only FDA-approved endovascular stent graft that can be used for aneurysms adjacent to the renal arteries.

“Up until a few years ago, patients with these types of aneurysms would require the more invasive open aneurysm surgery and weeks of recovery time,” said Dr. Berman.  “Now, with the availability of the new graft, they can have a minimally invasive procedure and only a few days in the hospital with fewer potential complications.”

During a training session earlier this month, a group of physicians spent the morning in the classroom and the afternoon in the hybrid operating room at Carondelet St. Mary’s practicing the procedure with plexiglass models.  “We are proud to be able to share our experience with this new procedure with other physicians in the region and nationally so that their patients may benefit from the technology as well,” said Dr. Berman.  

“Our surgeons are leaders in adopting new technology for improved patient care and in sharing best practices,” said Lisa Moses, Senior Director of Cardiovascular Services for Carondelet.  “We were pleased to be able to offer advanced training with this stent to physicians not only from our community, but from across the United States.”
