The global death rate for aortic diseases, which include thoracic aortic aneurysm, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and acute aortic syndromes, have steadily increased over the past two decades. The aorta is the largest and most important artery in the body. It carries blood away from your heart and to the rest of the body. At Ochsner, our comprehensive aortic team is board-certified and trained to provide a full range of high-quality aortic services.
