Most aortic conditions are treatable if diagnosed early and managed through long-term care and regular monitoring. Knowing the risk factors associated with aortic disease and understanding a family medical history can help put patients on the right path towards screening and prevention efforts.
Hypertension is the main cause of aortic conditions. Other conditions are genetic and may be passed down through generations, such as Marfan syndrome.
