Operation with less chance of complications or death.
Repairing the entire aorta is a complex operation that is only performed in a limited number of European hospitals. Crucial aspects of the procedure include connecting the blood supply to the spinal cord and other organs to the repaired aorta. Professor Jacobs (vascular surgeon) has worked with Professor Mess to create a unique collaborative concept that keeps the risk of paraplegia, organ failure and brain damage to a minimum. Due to the reduced likelihood of complications and death, the Jacobs and Mess aortic surgery team is internationally regarded as the world’s leading experts in this complex procedure. Professor Schurink is the leading aortic surgeon performing the endovascular procedures. The other team members who apply this procedure can be found here.
