Complex Thoracic Aortic Disease

Patients in need of complex aortic surgery receive the attention of a multidisciplinary group dedicated to the medical and surgical management of complex thoracic aortic disease. The team provides management expertise for all types of acute chronic aortic problems, including acute Type A and Type B aortic dissection, ascending aortic and aortic arch aneurysm, and aortic root reconstruction (including homograft procedures, thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic reconstruction, and complex circulation management techniques for aortic reconstruction). UPHS has also been a leading center for endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA) and its clinical trials. Patients are followed long-term by a team with expertise in the care of patients with residual aortic dissection and Marfan's syndrome. The clinical research program focuses on cerebral and spinal cord protection during thoracic aortic surgery.
