Aneurysm, cerebral ischemic syndrome, arterial occlusive disease, carotid endarterectomy, intra-abdominal sepsis, skin and soft-tissue infection, and peripheral vascular disease

Research Abstract

Vascular laboratory research activities focus on arterial prostheses and the problem of anastomotic intimal hyperplasia at the biologic-material interface. Two approaches investigated are the design of the prosthesis and methods for reducing the intimal hyperplastic reaction. Clinical trials are conducted at UCIMC on antimicrobials for surgical infectious disease as claudication. Dr. Wilson chairs a national cooperative study (ADAM) on the management of small aortic aneurysms.
