Aortic Diseases Treated
The aorta is the largest artery (blood vessel) in the body . It begins at the top of the left ventricle, the heart’s pumping chamber, and extends up into the chest and then down to the abdomen where it splits into two smaller arteries and carries oxygen rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The Aorta Program at Tampa General Hospital’s Heart & Vascular Center treats the following aortic diseases.
- Aortic aneurysms
- Aortic dissection (Type A and Type B)
- Penetrating aortic ulcers & Intramural hematomas
- Aortic occlusion
