Vascular Research

The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery has a dynamic clinical and basic science research program. We are leaders in the field of lower extremity limb salvage research.

Currently we have multiple clinical trials open, that focus on active therapies for the closure of diabetic foot ulcers and venous stasis ulcers. Various care modalities that are being explored include: topical growth factors, gene therapy, antimicrobial therapies and negative pressure wound therapies.

In the realm of vascular surgery we have recently participated in large multicenter randomized trials to look at the efficacy of drug eluting stent therapy in the lower extremity, gene therapy for limb salvage and novel techniques to decrease neointimal hyperplasia in arteriovenous anastomoses.


Dr Deva Boone accepts the Young Investigator Award at SAWC 2008.

More recently Wounds UK has recognized the Division for its work in “Innovations in the Reduction in Wound Infection”.

Individual resident initiated outcomes research is encouraged and has been successfully presented and published. Mentoring for such research is readily available from the faculty.

Basic science opportunities include models of acute and chronic wound infection and models of arteriosclerotic intervention. Current work in this area focuses on the role of the duration of angioplasty inflation on arterial wall remodeling. Basic science opportunities are usually pursued during the resident year in the lab.
