Extract from the Foreword
Treatments for aortic diseases have undergone explosive advances in the last decade. So too has our understanding of aortic disease processes. This progress in understanding and available treatments has come with the cost of increasing complexity.
Roberto Chiesa and Germano Melissano have edited a unique jewel of a book which deals with the many complexities of these advances in the pathogenesis of aortic diseases, their endovascular and open treatments and the management of treatment complications.
This volume, entitled Aortic Complexities, contains chapters by all those international innovators and thought leaders who have contributed the most to recent improvements in the management of aortic diseases. Accordingly it should be an invaluable up-to-date source of information for any physician or surgeon whose interests are focused on the aorta.
Professor Chiesa and Professor Melissano are to be congratulated for bringing together the leading experts in the aortic arena to produce a text which provides a cutting-edge view of the current state of the art in aortic diseases and their treatment. Aortic Complexities will be a must-have volume for all libraries and for all those interested in the aorta, its newer treatments and associated complexities.
