    Aortic dissection is an exceptionally complex disease and remains one of the most misdiagnosed diseases across the globe. Therefore, it is more important than ever for physicians to build their knowledge base of this area. Although the aorta is one organ and aortic dissection is one disease, Type A aortic dissection is usually treated by cardiac surgeons, and Type B aortic dissection, by vascular surgeons. The book discusses both types for the benefit of both specialists. Moreover, the book provides a unique glimpse into the lives of the patients who suffer with this disease. In addition to scientific chapters written by the most prominent experts in the field, the book includes stories shared by aortic dissection survivors. The volume contains the most thorough and up-to-date information on this disease and its treatment. The authors have recruited as contributors all the world innovators and leaders who are advancing knowledge in the natural history and exciting new treatments of Types A and B aortic dissections. Their achievements are summarized and illustrated in this book.
