What Is An Aortic Disease?

Aortic disease refers to a group of a medical condition that specifically affects the aorta. The aorta is the largest artery in the human body that originates from the top of the left ventricle. It is the main artery that carries blood from the heart through the aortic valve and connects with other arteries to deliver oxygenated blood to the brain, cells, and muscles.

Aortic diseases can be congenital, genetic, or acquired later in life. If left untreated, Aortic diseases can pose a severe threat to the patient's life. Some of the most common types of the aortic disease include aortic aneurysm, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and Marfan syndrome.
