Surgical management of aortic pathologies has changed dramatically, and this essential book fills the void with up-to-date comprehensive information on the topic. Written by physicians at the Arizona Heart Institute, which pioneered the use of thoracic endoluminal grafts, Endovascular and Hybrid Management of the Thoracic Aorta presents clinical scenarios as well as controversies in this fascinating and rapidly developing field. Discussing the etiology, diagnostic tools and management and treatment of specific pathologies of the aorta, this book is ideal for cardiovascular and vascular surgeons from all over the world. It is also of interest to residents in vascular and cardiothoracic surgery who have an interest in thoracic aortic disease management and want to be at the forefront of endovascular technology.
