Vascular surgeon Pat Kelly of Sanford Health knew his patients were doing better with the stent graft he designed, but he wanted a better understanding of the mechanics before testing the device more widely in a clinical trial. For that, he reached out to SDSU.
In April, Sanford Health signed a licensing deal with Medtronic that will bring this life-saving device closer to commercialization. The research was supported by a grant from Sanford Frontiers.
