About this book


Thoracic Aortic Diseases represents an ambitious undertaking by a large number of highly respected international specialists in aortic pathologies, with the purpose of providing information on the acquired and genetic basis of aortic diseases as well as a global perspective on therapeutic alternatives.

The new concept of a team approach with surgeons working together with both interventional radiologists and specialists to repair the aorta is the trademark of this book. New material and new viewpoints are provided to practicing physicians in this modern approach to the treatment of disorders of the aorta.

This book has been written in a clear scientific way summarising the current understanding of two major aortic complications: aneurysms and acute and chronic dissections. It is updated with the most recent basic clinical research, epidemiological findings, medical, surgical and endovascular therapies of the aorta.
