How do we address the chronic nature of aortic disease?
That simple question is creating a stir among your vascular colleagues and forcing physicians to ask some tough questions:
- Should the progression of aortic disease change a physician’s approach to endovascular aortic repair?
- What is considered a durable aortic repair?
- How does a physician provide EVAR patients with the most durable repair?
Many of the world’s leading specialists address these and other difficult issues related to EVAR, as well as the need for a durable repair, in the May 2014 supplement toEndovascular Today titled, “Choosing the Right Device for the Patient.”
The supplement is only the beginning. Cook Medical believes that it is important for patients that we continue this discussion about aortic disease as a progressive condition and to discuss the need for a durable repair. In the weeks and months ahead, watch for blog posts from more experts who will write about important topics related to EVAR.
