Dr. Rochus VoellerDr. Rochus Voeller will be discussing and presenting on open surgical aortic grafts. Due to anatomical constraints, open surgical graft replacement continue to remain the standard treatment for aneurysmal diseases and dissections of the aortic root, ascending aorta and the aortic arch. However, given the high morbidity and mortality associated with these operations, there is a need for the development of less invasive, endovascular approaches to accomplish the same repair.

The objective of the session is to discuss the strengths, weaknesses and design opportunities for the tools and devices used in modern surgery.
