Surgery of the Aorta and its Body Branches is a volume in the Modern Trends in Vascular Surgery series of texts presented at the Northwestern University Vascular Symposium. This textbook highlights the advancement of diagnosis and management of aortic disease.

The contributors address issues regarding volume and training for open surgery in the era of endovascular surgery in 14 sections and 51 chapters. Sections touch upon contemporary open techniques used for the treatment of thoracic, thoracoabdominal, and abdominal aortic aneurysms, as well as on reoperative aortic surgery. Subsequent sections focus on endovascular intervention and discuss broad topics including the use of endoprotheses for the treatment of not only straightforward aneurysms, but the management of acute dissections, traumatic injury, and the most common complications seen with endografting.
