Cardio Keynote Presentation
Vascular Keynote Presentation: Can AAA Rupture be Predicted by Aortic Functional Imaging?
Rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is the 13th leading cause of death in Western society. Moreover, AAA is generally asymptomatic, so precise prediction of AAA rupture risk is essential. -- Natzi Sakalihasan, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Natzi Sakalihasan is clinical professor, Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, University Hospital of Liège, and director, Experimental Research Center of the Cardiovascular Surgery Department, GIGA Cardiovascular Science Unit, University of Liège, Belgium. He received his medical school diploma from Cerrahpasa medical school of the University of Istanbul and its equivalence from the University of Liège. From 1986 up to date, Dr. Sakalihasan is a cardiovascular surgeon in the department of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at the University Hospital of Liège. He defended his doctoral and his aggregation thesis on aortic aneurysms in 1994 and 2005, respectively. Professor Sakalihasan has authored or coauthored about 90 scientific papers, including about 50 papers on abdominal aortic aneurysms. His research focuses on all aspects of an abdominal aortic aneurysm and functional imaging of aortic diseases.
