Timothy A.M. Chuter, MD is a pioneer in developing new devices and minimally invasive endovascular techniques to repair and eliminate aneurysms in patients who often have no other chance of effective treatment. Dr. Chuter's current research supports the use of multi-branched stent-graft implantation to treat a TAAA (thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm). He is also studying why complications, including partial paralysis, arise from using stents.
Dr. Chuter was the first to use bifurcated stent grafts for abdominal aortic aneurysms and arch aortic aneurysms, the first to use modular multi-branched stent grafts for common iliac aneurysms, and the first to perform endovascular repair of inflammatory aneurysms and aortobronchial fistulae. He holds 23 different patents related to endovascular aortic stent-graft devices, stents, attachment systems, delivery systems, and component junctions.
