Radboudumc-Rijnstate PhD-call

Dick - Rijnstate 16 Jul 2018

Dick Thijssen successfully obtained a 4-year PhD project in the last Radboudumc-Rijnstate PhD grant. This call is to promote collaborative research between the Radboudumc and Rijnstate. Together with vascular surgeon Michel Reijnen, we aim to improve care in patients with an abdominal aorta aneurysm. This abnormality of the abdominal aorta is associated with life-threatening complications, such as rupture of the artery. Specifically, we will examine whether the carotid artery reactivity-test ('our' test of vascular health that was introduced and validated in Anke van Mil's PhD-project) can predict progression of the aneurysm and occurrence of major events. We hope this will improve care and decision-making around the need and timing for surgery.
