Usually one to write the headlines in her role as a social media guru, Sarah herself has become the main story, as the UK’s first recipient of the Thoracoflo™ aortic graft.

Sarah Nuttman, the first UK patient to have a surgical repair of her Aorta using the new Thoracoflo™ Aortic graft from Terumo Aortic, has been reunited with her surgeons at the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery Annual Meeting (SCTS2024) in Wales.  She has also been featured in the leading newspaper - here.

Just two months on from her surgery, Sarah, who is attending SCTS2024 as a member of the Aortic Dissection Awareness UK & Ireland patient charity team, was delighted to meet Mr. Jorge Mascaro and Prof. Dr. Sabine Wipper, who carried out the complex Aortic repair in January.
