Horizon Vascular Specialists Perform Ground Breaking Procedure
ROCKVILLE, Md., May 19, 2011 – The vascular surgeons at Horizon Vascular Specialists recently performed a ground breaking, minimally invasive surgery on a WWII veteran.
Albert Katoski faced death as a medic in the WWII Battle of the Bulge in 1944. His gallantry earned him a Silver Star. He faced death again in March 2011 when he had a rupture of his chest and abdominal (thoraco-abdominal) aortic aneurysm.
Drs. Jeffrey Wang and Robert Fox of Horizon Vascular Specialists performed an endovascular thoraco-abdominal aneurysm repair at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital to repair this usually fatal condition. Mr. Katoski went home in only 36 hours.
Horizon Vascular Specialists are credentialed to provide endovascular repair of thoracic aneurysms. This minimally invasive approach treats one of the most complex vascular conditions and provides patients with treatment options other than more traumatic open surgery.
