    Research Overview:

    The main findings of our research to date are

    1) Patients with peripheral arterial disease have a prothrombotic state which may predispose to their increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality

    2) routine treatment such as surgery may exacebate this prothrombotic state and contribute to to the post-operative cardiovascular complications seen in these patients

    3) Platelet activity increases with the severity of the disease suggesting the need for more aggresive anti-platelet therapy in patients with severe disease

    4)Aspirin non-responsiveness increases post-operatively and predisposes to post-operative myocardial injury
