Abstract

Improved knowledge of the structure and function of the aortic wall, as well as its pathophysiology and histopathology, will result in an increasing impact on clinical evaluation and treatment of thoracic aortic diseases. This opinion paper highlights the main "paradigmatic shifts" in this field, providing cardiologists with some novel clues for the clinical approach to patients with thoracic aortic disease.
