This book highlights the new changes in the management of thoracic aortic diseases. It focuses on endovascular surgery and details various clinical case scenarios as well as controversies to highlight the use of this new technology.
Since the first endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm was reported in the early 1990s, there has been an explosion in the volume and complexity of endovascular and hybrid procedures for the treatment of aortic diseases. Endovascular techniques and technologies have evolved from the initial devices that allowed treatment of only the most straightforward infrarenal aneurysms with appropriately long and straight necks to the scenario that pertains today, wherein a customized endovascular solution is almost always available for even the most complex aortic aneurysm. There is growing evidence in favor of the endovascular treatment of these aneurysms, which extend above the visceral aortic segment, as well as for the treatment of thoracic aortic dissection and aneurysm. These new endoaortic surgical procedures have been proven to shorten hospitalization, reduce morbidity and mortality, speed recovery, and hasten return to normal life, while their evolution and conceptual design would obviously not be possible without the simultaneous explosion in medical imaging technologies that has taken place over a similar time period.
The Atlas of Advanced Endoaortic Surgery has been compiled to engage its readers in a comprehensive yet concise manner, with numerous illustrations of real clinical cases. It provides a useful tool for practitioners as they plan and execute treatment of patients with these various aortic pathologies, and serves as a useful reference as this segment of the field continues to evolve.

From the reviews:
"This atlas encompasses the planning, techniques, and equipment required for endovascular treatment of complex aortic pathology from the arch to the iliacs. ... This book targets practitioners who perform, or are in training in order to perform, complex endovascular procedures for aortic pathology. ... This is a good and relatively up-to-date reference on complex endoaortic surgery. It is helpful for vascular surgeons who require a start-to-finish approach to these cases, from planning to management of complications." (Mark K. Eskandari, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2013)

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.
Currently no other book on market which focuses on endovascular surgery for thoracic aortic pathologies The book details various clinical case scenarios as well as controversies to highlight the use of this new technology The various aortic pathologies would be discussed combining etiology, diagnostic tools like intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and 64 slide CT scans which are all state of the art technologies, endovascular treatment, management of endoleaks, reinterventions combined with techniques of trouble shooting
