Personalized medicine and the silent killer: using 3D printing technology to treat aortic aneurysms 
Doran Mix, MD, and Michael Stoner, MD

  • Aneurysms strike without warning and are one of the leading causes of sudden death in the United States. Most aortic aneurysms can be repaired through minimally invasive surgery using standard stents, but complex cases demand a tailored approach. Learn how our vascular surgeons use 3D printing to produce personalized stents for patients.

  • Nearly 6 million adults in the United States have heart failure, a serious disease in which the heart cannot pump enough blood and oxygen. Learn how URMC clinicians are making important advances in treatment, and how our researchers are studying the genes that cause heart failure and identifying new ways to block progression of the disease.
