The Operative Services


The focus of elective Liverpool Cardiovascular Surgery is on the skills interface between cardiac and vascular surgery. This will include:

  1. Endovascular therapies on the aorta associated with need for coronary surgery or proximal root surgery or TAVI
  2. Open Extent IV procedures
  3. Branched TEVAR
  4. Hybrid TAA procedures
  5. Open, endovascular and hybrid procedures


Urgent and Emergency

Urgent and emergency intervention on the thoracoabdominal aorta has been the thrust of joint working between LHCH and LiVES over the last two decades. Many patients have benefited from the specialists skills from both specialities brought to bare to solve complex life threatening pathologies.

More recently this has been formalised through the Merseyside and Cheshire STP as an 'Acute Aortic Syndrome Pathway' called LANTAS (Liverpool Acute Network for Thoracic Aortic Services).

LANTAS is part of:

  • Thoracic Aortic Services at LHCH.
  • LiVES at RLUH, Aintree and Whiston.
  • Liverpool Cardiovascular Surgery (LHCH and LiVES).
