Dr Darren Klass
Dr. Klass is an interventional radiologist at Vancouver General and UBC Hospitals in Vancouver, Canada and is the IR head of the complex thoracic aortic stent graft program at Vancouver General Hospital. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Pretoria in South Africa and then trained initially as a surgeon and then as a radiologist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in Norwich, England, before completing a fellowship in interventional radiology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Dr Klass completed Doctorate titled Bimodal Electric Tissue Ablation. He performed the first transradial radioembolization and chemoembolization of the liver in Canada and is developed the radial program at Vancouver General where approximately 90% of arterial cases are performed radially. He performed his first distal radial procedure in 2017 and has now performed over 450 cases, concentrating on refinement of ultrasound guided access and a rapid hemostasis protocol for distal access. Distal radial is now his default access. He is the head of MRI for Vancouver Acute and has specialist training in low dose MR angiography. He developed an MRI program focusing on low dose steady state MRA as well as time resolved MR angiography for flow quantification. His current research interests include radial artery patency and mechanisms to decrease the incidence and improve patient discharge times. He developed a rapid hemostasis protocol for radial intervention which has decreased their nursing intensity five-fold compared to femoral access. Other research includes intraprocedural perfusion of liver tumors pre and post intervention and perfusion assessment of tumor response to ablation. He is part of a multispecialty aortic treatment team, treating aortic pathology with a focus on aortic dissection and stenting subacute, high risk patients. Research in this field includes outcomes, reintervention rates and aortic remodeling.
