There is no standard textbook at this time on endovascular management of thoracic aortic pathologies. Atlas of Thoracic Aortic Endografting contains clinical case scenarios as well as controversies to highlight the use of this new technology. The various aortic pathologies are discussed, combining etiology, diagnostic tools like intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and 64 slice CT scans which are all state of the art technologies, endovascular treatment, management of endoleaks, reinterventions combined with techniques of trouble shooting. This book highlights the new changes in the management of thoracic aortic diseases.
The editors are world-renowned physicians who are experts and experienced in the management of thoracic aortic pathologies using endovascular techniques. Jacques Kpodonu, MD is a cardiothoracic surgeon and and a fellow in vascular and endovascular surgery at the Arizona Heart Hospital and a co author of Clinical Scenarios in Thoracic Surgery.
