The combined work of experts in cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery,
cardiovascular anesthesia, interventional radiology, and genetics help
determine the causes of aortic diseases, such as thoracic aortic
aneurysm and aortic dissection, and to find safer treatments.
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a bulging, weakened area in the wall of the aorta resulting in an abnormal ballooning greater than 50% of the normal diameter.
