Vascular Update 2019  


Thoracic Aortic Surgery: Tearing, Expansion, Rupture, and Thrombosis
Thank you for your interest in the Dignity Health Heart and Vascular Institute of Greater Sacramento's CME Symposium. 

Thoracic aortic disease (TAD) accounts for 43,000 to 47,000 deaths per year in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention; however, the true number is unclear. Unfortunately, the initial presentation of TAD is often death due to dissection and rupture, nearly double the deaths attributed to ruptured abdominal aneurysms. Thus, early recognition and referral to specialized centers with experts in the treatment and management of this condition is essential to improve patient outcomes and survival. 

Online Registration is open. Please scroll to the bottom of the page to fill out the form.
