About this book


This book examines various aspects of the aorta, both healthy and diseased states, in 40 chapters of in-depth research by experts in cardiovascular disease. It begins with chapters on the embryology, anatomy, genetics, and physiology of the aorta along with imaging studies used to visualize its structure. The bulk of the book focuses on acute and chronic disorders such as coarctation of the aorta, inflammatory and connective tissue disorders, acute aortic thrombosis, infections, tumors, related ocular diseases, and various aneurysms and fistulas. In addition, it explores aortic disease in pregnancy, fetal aortic disorders, and aortic trauma in children. The book highlights the epidemiology and natural history as well as medical, endovascular, and surgical treatments for each disease. It also discusses valve repair, 3D printing applications, and the role of multidisciplinary aortic centers. Diseases of the Aorta is an indispensable and authoritative resource for cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, radiologists, and vascular medicine specialists.
