The Department of Surgery/Division of Vascular Surgery held it’s first Annual Syde A. Taheri Lectureship on December 13, 2018. Dr. Syde A. Taheri is known nationally and internationally for his multiple inventions. He is one of the co-inventors of the Talent Endovascular Aortic Stent Grafts, primarily now used in its Thoracic role, as well as significant contributions to Venous Valve Surgery and Disease. We were honored to have Dr. Juan Carlos Parodi present, “Innovations in Vascular Surgery that Revolutionized the Specialty”. Dr. Parodi is widely regarded as the leader of the endovascular revolution in vascular surgery, overcoming a host of obstacles to develop specialty-changing aneurysm endograft technology. Dr. Parodi is seen here with the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Department of Surgery, Division of Vascular Surgery Program.
