Physicians in the Fireman Vascular Center at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) are now offering a new and less invasive method of treatment for carotid artery disease known as transcarotid artery revascularization, or TCAR.
The most modern clinical trial to compare the use of carotid-artery stenting with carotid endarterectomy for the prevention of strokes in asymptomatic patients with serious narrowing of the carotid artery finds no significant differences in outcomes between the two procedures over a period of up to five years.
A team of researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston Medical Center and MGH has been awarded $25 million by the National Institutes of Health to conduct a clinical trial comparing traditional bypass surgery with a less invasive treatment alternative for patients with critical limb ischemia.
A new clinical trial is now underway at the Massachusetts General Hospital to investigate whether combining two endovascular catheter-based procedures will improve the long-term outcome in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, the most common heart rhythm disorder. Mass General is the first hospital in New England – and only the second in the nation – to pair renal artery sympathetic denervation with pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for patients with atrial fibrillation and hypertension.
Massachusetts General Hospital has moved into the number one spot on the 2012-13 U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Hospitals” list.
Vascular surgeons at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) treated the first patient in New England in the Ventana U.S. Clinical Trial last week. MGH is one of 25 sites in the U.S. chosen to participate in this prospective, multicenter research study approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Ventana™ Fenestrated System for the endovascular repair of juxtarenal (JAA) and pararenal (PAA) aortic aneurysms.
Dr. Michael R. Jaff named chairman and moderator of a task force aimed at increasing awareness of peripheral artery disease.
A report from a team of Massachusetts General Hospital physicians calls into question the longstanding belief that pulmonary embolism – the life-threatening blockage of a major blood vessel in the lungs – is caused in trauma patients by a blood clot traveling from vessels deep within the legs or lower torso.

Dr. Michael Jaff, Medical Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Fireman Vascular Center, is featured in a CNN segment on Peripheral Arterial Disease.
Fireman Vascular Center physicians and scientists participate in international research and lead more than 70 clinical trials that evaluate current therapies and investigate new devices to treat vascular disease. These research efforts have led to a number of groundbreaking firsts, bringing innovative new treatments to the patient’s bedside.
Guy Rordorf, MD, vascular neurologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital Fireman Vascular Center, says an imaging test can detect fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), and recommends it for those with a family history of the condition. Learn more about FMD and how it weakens artery walls and can lead to severe hypertension or stroke.
Since 1811, people have counted on Mass General for answers, innovations and medical leadership. As our third century dawns, we remain ready to serve.

Jim O’Brien started to experience pain in his legs and difficulty walking, even short distances. He visited Dr. Douglas Drachman at Mass General, who diagnosed him with peripheral artery disease (PAD). While treating Jim for PAD, Mass General found and diagnosed him with liver cancer. The team of doctors collaborated closely to balance the treatment of both diseases.
Jessica Diaz had a stroke caused by a small hole in the heart, which had allowed a blood clot to travel to her brain. As a young and active mother of two, Jessica worked with a team of Mass General doctors to not only repair her heart, but determine a treatment plan to minimize future health risks.
When Sean Sullivan arrived at the Emergency Department at Mass General, doctors immediately recognized the symptoms of a pulmonary embolism and activated the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT). With a single call, dozens of Mass General doctors from different specialties were notified of his condition and quickly discussed a treatment plan.
