Listed as co-author of 54 documents in PubMed, including:
The phase I multicenter trial (STAPLE-1) of the Aptus endovascular repair system: results at 6 months and 1 year.
This was a phase I IDE study.

I believe I found him through a book in a library.
The FDA should not be dragging his name through their bureaucratic mud. When I called his office the first and second times, first he would not do this work at all, then not until he had an IRB approval. I think he knows what an IDE is.
