Jose “Pepe” Alvarez Jr., M.D. Memorial Lecture on Vascular Disease: Inflammatory and Genetic Diseases of the Aorta and Peripheral Vessels

October 27, 2020

Inflammatory changes to the aortic wall can be caused by a multitude of different diseases. The broad spectrum of pathogenic factors and nonspecific clinical presentation often delay initial diagnosis; however, a precise determination of the underlying pathology is essential for successful management. The aim of this lecture is to describe the pathogenesis, symptoms and diagnosis of aortitis and equip healthcare providers with the knowledge required to perform adequate treatment following an appropriate diagnostic work-up.
