We provide the highest quality clinical care for patients dealing
with vascular disease. Our interdisciplinary team excels in designing
innovative solutions to challenging vascular problems, whether it's
medical or surgical management, aneurysms, or aortic
Vascular surgeons often must choose from an array of possible
therapeutic procedures. The patient's blood flow responses under
stress and exercise conditions are significant factors in the decision
making process. However, current diagnostic tests usually provide
information on resting blood flow only.
The Division's Cardiovascular Biomechanics Lab is an
interdisciplinary project with the School of Engineering in Stanford's Bio-X
Program. Researchers in this project have developed computational
models to help predict changes in blood flow under conditions of
stress and exercise.
These predictive models will provide new tools to help our vascular
surgeons select the best treatment for each patient.

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
