Today is Medical Monday at Aortic Hope.
One of the many overwhelming aspects of the aortic community is the day-to-day terminology.
With the help of the Corrigan Minehan Heart Center, we are sharing with you a list of the common words/phrases used within the aortic community. Hopefully, by defining things such as Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), Type A Aortic Dissection, Type B Aortic Dissection, Atherosclerosis, Bicuspid Aortic Valve, Hypothermic Circulatory Arrest and more, we will make it easier for you to have a conversation with your physician.
