Diseases of the Aorta


Frantisek Sabol, Adrian Kolesar and Panagiotis Artemiou

The book comprehensively summarizes current knowledge on albeit uncommon, but serious aortic diseases. Until now, diseases of the aorta were part of texts from the area of internal medicine, angiology, imaging methods, vascular surgery and cardiac surgery. The importance and need for a publication with a cross-specialty reach is demonstrated in day-to-day practice. Due to the improvements in diagnostic methods and subsequent earlier diagnosis, patients with some of these aortic diseases are no longer a rarity and it is expected that with the increase in survival rates, we will be encountering them more often. A chapter on aneurysm etiology presents an overview of all etiological groups, allowing the reader to become versed in the topic, while pointing out the less known aneurysm causes.
Contents: Ethiology of an aortic disease – Aortic aneurysm – Dissection – Transsection.
