His major interests have centered around "device" development and include the co-invention of a coronary angioscope, a laser angioplasty catheter, and the Wiktor™ coronary stent. Another major area of interest has been the integration of coronary and peripheral vascular interventional therapy including the clinical utility of renal and carotid stents, limb-salvage angioplasty, pharmacologic and mechanical thrombolysis for acute ischemia, and acute stroke intervention. His current research interests involve the detection of biomarkers for vascular disease, the utililty of ablation devices for hypertension and the development of percutaneous heart valves.
