Nashville Vascular and Vein Institute (NVAVI) founder Patrick C Ryan, MD, FACS, FSVS, a board-certified vascular surgeon who holds several national roles focused on quality metrics and performance in the field, has joined a very small group in the region offering TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR). An early adopter of the hybrid technology, Ryan said TCAR uses a unique surgical approach to stenting the carotid artery to minimize complications. He added, the clinically proven procedure allows many patients with high-risk lesions or severe medical problems, who previously weren't candidates for open surgery due to stroke risk, to undergo the less invasive, potentially life-saving intervention to remove plaque. NVAVI cares for patients in Middle Tennessee, North Alabama and Kentucky.
