New Approaches to Aortic Disease from Valve to Abdominal Bifurcation provides a complete look at aortic valve diseases from all points of view, including etiology, physiopathology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The book offers new insights into the aortic valve and pathology based on evidence of current diagnostic methods, treatments and post-surgery evolution. Content is split into three distinct parts for ease of reference, including an overview of aortic pathology, diagnostic evaluations methods, and treatments. Also included are guidelines and future research directions, making this a must-have volume for all cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons who address significant issues in this topic area.
- Present pathophysiological sequences that are shown in correlation with histological details
- Includes detailed clinical examinations and the value of the initial assessment using chest X-ray, echocardiography, angiography, CT angiography and magnetic resonance, etc.
- Provides conventional descriptions of surgical techniques that are entirely detailed, along with long-term results and possible complications
