Hellenic Journal of Cardiology
Professor Christoph Nienaber, a consultant interventional cardiologist at Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, has co-written a research publication that has been featured in the Hellenic Journal of Cardiology, the official journal of the Hellenic Society of Cardiology.
The research paper, ‘The genetic basis of thoracic aortic disease: The future of aneurysm classification?’, focuses on the impact of genes on Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TAA) progress and the dissection risk.
Key topics include:
- Genetic basis of disease: aortic mechanical homeostasis
- Syndromic TAAs
- Familial thoracic aortic aneurysms (non-syndromic TAA)
- Sporadic thoracic aortic disease
- Variants of “unknown” significance
