About the book

Abdominal aortic aneurysms are the main cause of death among all arterial aneurysms. Aortic aneurysms are a multi factorial disease with multiple clinical presentations. The anatomical segment of the aorta most affected by aneurysmal disease is infrarenal region. Only 15% of aortic aneurysms affect the thoracic aorta. Abdominal aneurysmal disease is more common in men, being 9 times less common in women. Abdominal physical examination may have low sensitivity, requiring complementary imaging tests, such as: aortic angiotomography, MRI and Doppler ultrasound. Open surgery and endovascular surgical treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms is necessary and must follow technical criteria. Abdominal aortic aneurysms can have complex anatomy requiring specific treatments. The follow-up of abdominal aortic aneurysms is controversial in relation to sensitivity and specificity of the image exams to be performed in the medium and long term. Many clinical complications can occur in the postoperative period of abdominal aortic aneurysms requiring immediate clinical measures.

The aim of this book is to describe aortic embryology, aorta's anatomy, pathophysiology of aortic aneurysm, methods of image diagnostic of aortic abdominal aneurysm, treatment of complex aortic aneurysm, post surgery clinical complications, intensive care in post surgery aortic aneurysm, and clinical follow up.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
