Special Issue Introduction

Cardiovascular disease continues to represent one of the main cause of death in many developing countries. Among these, acute and chronic aortic dissections have a prominent role. In the last two decades, the association of several factors such as the improvement of the diagnostic imaging modalities, the longer life expectancy of the population and a longer exposure to high blood pressure, have all contributed to increase their incidence. However, despite all the progress obtained in the diagnosis and treatment of aortic disease and aortic dissection in particular, if on the one hand there is an unanimous consensus on what are the diagnostic "gold standards", on the other, uncertainties remain about the use of biomarkers to anticipate and improve the diagnosis of aortic dissection and about the “ideal” therapeutic management of aortic dissection. Moreover, there is no doubt that, in the management of aortic dissection, "decision-making" represents a crucial and extremely important step, especially regarding the timing and the type of the various treatment options.

In this special issue of Vessel Plus, we will not only discuss these issues, but we also want to encourage and invite our authors to report their experiences so that we can enrich our knowledge about the new and latest frontiers in the diagnosis and management of aortic dissection.
