Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are grateful to the researchers who contributed to the first volume of the Special Issue “Mechanism, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Aortic Diseases” (

Many diseases can occur in the aorta. Examples of such diseases are aneurysms, dissections, stenoses/occlusions and aortitis. Each disease has its own pathomechanism, predisposing factors, clinical and radiological characteristics, and therapeutic approaches. Computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance angiography, ultrasound and, in special cases, positron emission tomography (PET) and PET-CT play a key role in establishing diagnosis and assessing therapeutic efficacy. Due to the complexity of aortic diseases, the optimal therapy, which may be pharmacological, endovascular, open surgery or a combination thereof, is usually decided by a multidisciplinary team.

As a result of intensive experimental and clinical research, much has been unveiled in recent years about the pathomechanism of and predisposing factors for aortic diseases, but many questions remain unanswered. Significant progress has also been made in diagnostic methods and drug therapies, as well as invasive (mainly endovascular) devices. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of the results of genetic, immunological, vascular, radiological and surgical research related to the pathomechanism, diagnosis and therapy of aortic diseases.
