Synopses & Reviews
As life expectancy is extended, the incidence and occurrence of Aortic Aneurysms are becoming increasingly common. Until recently, the treatment of aortic disease was primarily surgical, carrying a high mortality rate among the high risk elderly population. In Aortic Aneurysms: Pathogenesis and Treatment, Gilbert R. Upchurch Jr., Enrique Criado, and a panel of distinguished physicians comprehensively assess the rapidly evolving field of aneurysm treatment, focusing on aneurysms of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta. The discussion of Aortic Aneurysms covers endovascular aortic repair as well as the recent significant improvements in stent graft design. This volume provides a concise and authoritative view of the current state of patient management, serving as a primer on clinical care and surgical procedures for aortic aneurysms. Comprehensive and up-to-date, Aortic Aneurysms: Pathogenesis and Treatment, offers Cardiologists, Vascular Surgeons, and Thoracic and Cardiac Surgeons a multidisciplinary approach to the management and treatment of patients with aortic disease.
From the reviews: "In Aortic Aneurysms, the authors offer a comprehensive summary of the ever-changing landscape of aneurysm treatment, with special attention given to aneurysms of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta. ... This is a benchmark reference which should be required reading for all cardiologists and all cardiac and thoracic surgeons - noted for its clear style and erudite examination of management and treatment of aortic disease and aortic aneurysms."
