Clinical Specialties

Dr. de Biasi specializes in complex aortic surgery, including: David valve-sparing aortic root replacement, acute type A aortic dissection, thoracic aortic aneurysm, re-do aortic surgery, total arch replacement, frozen elephant trunk techniques, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), thoracoabdominal aortic replacement, and aortic surgery for connective tissue disorders like Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes. He additionally has considerable experience in minimally invasive heart valve surgery, including mini-sternotomy aortic valve replacement, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), and mini-thoracotomy mitral valve repair. Dr. de Biasi is also trained in advanced surgical techniques for coronary artery disease like coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using multiple arterial conduits, off-pump and beating-heart CABG, and minimally invasive myocardial bridge unroofing.

Research Interests

Dr. de Biasi’s research focuses on the novel identification of risk factors for aortic dissection and aneurysm propagation using multidisciplinary analytics, including artificial intelligence technologies. He is also interested in the application of endovascular devices in aortic arch surgery.
