UC Davis vascular specialists John Laird and Reginald Low participate in a worldwide telecast of surgeries.

Nearly 12,000 physicians, technicians and other specialists observed UC Davis vascular specialists John R. Laird and Reginald Low, along with some of the world's other leading endovascular interventionalists, perform live surgeries for the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics meeting, the largest interventional cardiology conference in the world.

Operating from the cardiac catheterization labs at UC Davis Medical Center last October, Laird and Low performed a repair of degenerated vein grafts on patients, using newly designed stents. They also used a new laser catheter on two patients with peripheral arterial disease to improve blood flow to the legs and allow them to walk farther without pain.
