In the last 10 years lots of new technology has helped patients with aortic disease to survive their surgery, recover more quickly and to get back to normal life. 

These improvements span everything from better X-rays machine and X-rays in operating theatres to stents and stent grafts, all the way to operating robots.

Each of these new waves of technology need to be properly understood and their strengths a weaknesses determined. This requires investment in both machinery and in people - usually young surgeons in training - who are learning how to research new techniques and how to teach the surgical world about their findings.
