Department of Vascular Surgery (CVA)


The vascular surgery department belongs to the DCV (Département Coeur Vaisseau) of the CHUV (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois).

Our group has put in place a translational platform with advanced cell- and molecular biology, animal models in combination with patient-centered research.

The close proximity between clinical vascular surgery and research creates a unique platform for the resolution of issues of immediate concern for clinical care, as well as breeding of future clinical academic leadership.

Our goal is to better understand the processes associated with peripheral vascular diseases such as Peripheral artery disease (PAD) and Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) associated with inflammation and vascular repair.

We are also developing new research related to kidney transplantation, which constitutes a major part of our clinical activity.

In the past few years, our laboratory has published many original peer-review articles in both clinical and fundamental research.
