I am a 2nd Year Innovation Fellow within the Human Performance Alliance in the 2022-23 class at the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign. I just completed the Biodesign Innovation Fellowship at the Byers Center for Biodesign. I am also in my fifth year of residency in the Integrated Vascular Surgery program at the Keck Medical Center of USC in Los Angeles, California. My educational interests are in vascular surgery, medical device innovation, and entrepreneurship.

  • Physician-modified fenestrated endograft for postdissection thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm following provisional extension to induce complete attachment and renal artery stenting. Journal of vascular surgery cases and innovative techniques Ganapathy, A. V., Cash, J. C., Magee, G. A., Ziegler, K. R., Han, S. M. 2022; 8 (3): 367-371


    We have described a patient with a history of type A-11 dissection repair, who subsequently underwent thoracic endovascular aortic repair with distal bare metal dissection stents (provisional extension to induce complete attachment) and renal artery stenting for malperfusion. During the next 3years, the thoracoabdominal aorta had continued to enlarge to 6.9cm, despite false lumen embolization and thoracic endovascular aortic repair extension. Given the continued aortic enlargement, physician-modified fenestrated endovascular aortic repair was performed within the prior aortic and renal stents with successful aneurysm sealing. The results from the present case have illustrated that continued aneurysmal degeneration can occur after provisional extension to induce complete attachment and that subsequent physician-modified fenestrated endovascular aortic repair is feasible.
